Thinking about a corrective bit for my horse

I have a gelding who is used for trails and pleasure, nothing too fancy. He's been raised on a Tom Thumb, but I switched him over to a snaffle when I got him. Even in the Tom, he'd run through the bit. He's older, so it's probably something that he's been doing for a good while. He does not stop well or back up well. It takes a while to turn him if he puts his little Appy mind to something, but he's very far from high-strung. I'm a seat-and-leg-heavy rider, I'd rather use reins as a last resort and my hands are very soft. I'm thinking about purchasing a corrective bit with hinges or free bit. Something with a port to clue him into the activity but not haul on his mouth. However, he rides with a contact rein, he does not neck rein. I've been told a free port bit would help him out. Maybe just a full cheek snaffle? I'm not picky, I'd just like a more responsive head in him. I'm looking at the below bits, and I'd like your opinion or recommendations. Thanks, y'all!
