Pros/Cons/Opinions- Argentine dog bone bit

So my gelding hates the Tom thumb, likes the d-ring and full cheek snaffle with rollers but doesn't respond well in it at all. Now I know people are going to respond "well did you have his teeth checked?" and yes. I did. He is having them floated and wolf teeth removed in two weeks. Now I just bought an argentine sweet iron snaffle with a copper roller. Now any pros/cons/opinions on this bit? Any better/worse then the Tom thumb? Input is appreciated! Thanks.

I think it might make more sense to wait until his teeth are done to reasses the two snaffle bits you listed.

My wife ride an Argentine on her QH. She went to a med port curb but went back to the Argentine. She says she has more control with it that with the curb.

I figured since there is no pinching action. And the shanks arent nearly as long. I guess we will see how he likes it aftr his teeth are floated!
