Where to buy specific bit?

I'm looking for a 5 1/2" rubber-covered french link snaffle, eggbutt preferable but not necessary.
Does a bit like this exist? Anyone know where I can buy one (online)?

The only one I can find is by aBitSpecial. They are based in the UK but from what I've read on their site, it seems they do business in Canada, as well. Here's the link:

Thanks London and K_V.
London: When I converted the price of that bit to Canadian dollars, it was around 125$ O.O so I think I'll keep looking, though that was exactly what I'm looking for.
K_V: I need rubber, unfortunately happy mouth won't work (picky horse).

Sorry, couldn't find any rubber specifically with french link (single joined plenty). Looks like they are not in big demand. Good luck finding one!

I wonder if anyone has seen one in a local tack store? The one Bubba posted is still about $100 and overseas. I'm willing to pay about $50 for it, but no more, as it's just for a horse I'm exercising.

Thanks everyone. I can't believe it's this difficult to find one!
