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.

I know. But I just wanted to know people's opinions on the bit. I won't be riding til his teeth are done.

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!
