Pinchless bit?

Just wondering if there really is such a thing as a pinchless bit? I've seen them on websites and such but is there really such a thing as a pinchless bit?

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

The snaffle in your avatar would be considered pinchless due to the way the mouthpiece is attached to the "D". There are no moving pieces on the lips of your horse's mouth.

A grazing bit would be considered 100% pinchless since there are no moving parts.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.
