Opinions on This Bit

I just bought this bit to transition my 12-y/o gelding from a snaffle to a curb. (I know, a little late, but it's our favorite bit and we've no need to switch other than that we can't use a snaffle in a show since he's over 5yo). What's your opinion on it? Have any of you used it? Do you think it'd be a good transition?

Every horse is an angel... They just don't need wings to soar!

Looks like it moves independently on each side, moves in the middle, nice short curved shanks. Looks fine to me.
