Lightbulb Roundings?

Does anybody here use pelham roundings or use double reins on there pelham bit? I'm thinking a pelham bit can only work to its full affect with two sets of reins!

You are correct!
I"ve used them, and they work, but I feel so much better when I can work each rein independently, giving and taking on the curb as I need it...

I had to ride with them today they were easier but I would have preferred the two reins for more control

They muddle the signals from the separate aids by combining them together, thereby defeating the point. If you you want the ease of one rein, find a bit other than a pelham. It simply ruins the point and purpose of the bit not to ride with double reins. And really, it isn't very hard to learn how to use them properly, just takes a little time to get used to, so I can't see why there is any reason that anyone would want to use a connector.
