TT twisted wire seems pretty similar in harshness to the "torture devices" listed above.
Just because a bit is harsher doesn't mean it's used for a horse that doesn't respond to subtle cues. Horses can feel tiny flies land on their bum, what makes you think they don't feel even 1lb of pressure in their mouth... Broken 3 piece snaffle gives a ratio of 1:1 for every lb you pull the horse feels 1lb... There is no excuse for your horse to be "ignoring" your cues, yet, not need retraining.
life has no remote control hitch them up and drive them your self
