Val, why are you looking to change bits? There is a very old saying that I use all the time, "If it ain't broken, don't fix it".
Thanks, iride! You are very helpful as always! :)
I have Mikmar one, which she obviously likes, but it's eggbutt, and my trainer is pushing me to try loose ring. The local Dover has Mikmar roller only (not lorenzo as I have on my eggbutt), so I basically want to give it a try.
It's weird, but I tried KK lorenzo yesterday (darn expensive, and the only reason I tried is my paint seems to prefer it the best), and she HATED it (so I just returned). I've never seen her so unhappy with the bit, but I'm still not positive why: different shape of the mouthpiece? Loose rings? Material it's made of (but it's also copper inlay)? Just have no ideas...
