Personally, I prefer a loose ring snaffle with copper. It puts less pressure than you'd get with a D ring. I just got a used one for $18 at the tack shop. The new ones were $28.
Farmpony, the hinge in the mouthpiece looks awfully large. Is that going to be comfortable? Also, I don't think the bit you purchased is going to be functionally different from a D ring as it does not appear to be a loose ring snaffle. The O rings I like move freely, unlike the D ring snaffles.
