Bits should be selected based on the horse.

What bit is your horse currently going in?

Why exactly would you put him in a combination gag bit with twisted mouthpieces..? That bit is made for barrel racers, it is not legal for reining.

The bit you choose depends on your horses training level, what he is happy working in and what your hands can handle.

Your trainer should help you select a bit for you horse.

^^ Slight correction. Your REINING trainer should help you choose your bit and it will change as the training progresses. The bit they start in is not usually what they are in when finished, altho it can be. There are WAY too many variables for someone here to even attempt to tell you.

And that gag-chain thing-Nope-never in reining.

I would think that is going to be one confused horse if you try to rein and chase cans on him...totally different mind set.
