Roller bit. Bits with a tongue roller

If a bit has a high port already, what is the use of a tongue roller?? Do they like to play with it? How does it affect the horse in regards to how they preform?

Usually those rollers are copper. I'm not sure that the would help a horse perform better necessarily, but they are designed to encourage salivating (which usually means a focused/relaxed horse)...some horses also just like to be able to play with the roller. Alot of roller bits, aren't necessarily a "high ported" bit either. Some of them are fairly low, still, even with a roller. I have one bit that has a straightish mouth, with rollers on it.
