Need help finding full cheek snaffle

I'm looking for one with french link or roller, and preferably with some taste (copper or sweet iron). Any suggestions?? :)

Here's some I found when I went hunting for you.

This one seems to be exactly what you want but is quite pricy...
Stubben Full Cheek Snaffle from SmartPak Equine

This one is also pretty expensive...
Mikmar Cupreon Full Cheek Snaffle Horse Bit with Ergom Lozenge - Dover Saddlery.

It doesn't have the copper or sweet iron but the price is great...
French Link Full Cheek Horse Bit - Dover Saddlery.

Again no copper but this one is on the cheaper side and has the lozenge in the middle (which I love)....

I hope this helps! It's so hard to find a full cheek with copper and french link unless you plan on spending atleast $80.

Korsteel makes a sweet iron full cheek that is very reasonably priced, alas, it is not a french link.

Thank you, folks!

I plan on going to Dover and pick up the Mikmar one to try. It's expensive one. :( But it's the only one size 5 1/4. I couldn't find anything else either.

I have 5 1/2 Albacon on her now and it's big (per my trainer and how it looks to me). 5 is too small though (I tried my paint's one on her). So looks like 5 1/4 is the only one to go with.

I actually have a full cheek snaffle with copper rollers... if for some reason you can't find what you need, let me know, and you can at least try mine out. :]

Thank you, LK! I really appreciate your suggestion!
I'm going to Dover today to see how that Mimar will work... :)
