Snaffle D-ring w/ Copper Mouth
 
Hey everyone !
I just wanted to know what everyone's opinion's are for a copper d-ring snaffle with a copper mouth,
I am looking to purchase one, but what are the pro's and con's of having a copper mouth ?
Any additional opinion's and such are very appreciated

Copper mouths are great but get a good quality one. I had a copper dee ring and the copper was too soft. You could see bite marks in it, and had a sharp edge from the wear.

Would you say that this one is good quality :) ?

I would shop for a brand name one. Might be a little more expensive but it will last. Its hard to tell without looking at the bit, and trying to scratch the copper.

Okay, well that bit is a Metalab bit, any one with those brand bit's with copper good quality ?

That is the bit I use. It says Korsteel on the side. I like it and my horse seems to like it. No chance of pinching the corners of the mouth.
I paid I beleive $29.

I've heard that if it does get sharp edges you can just file them down. Don't quote me on that though as I haven't owned one.

The person who has bought this, paid $40 or so $ for it.
