Engraved Shank Roller Bar Correction Bit by Partrade

Aluminum Smooth Correction Bit, 5" Sweet Iron mouth w/ copper barrels, 8" Engraved aluminum cheeks. 5½" shank. 2" port. Imported.


I'm assuming the 8" is from top to botton so where is the 5 1/2?

Also - comments from western pleasure folks on this bit please?

Pro's, con's... better bit suggestions?

To the OP, I LOVE that bit you posted....I school my horse quite often in that very same bit. Those shanks are a good length too. I've ridden in 8" shanks but I prefer them a little shorter.

^you want a roller in the bit, is that what you mean? Or just rollers like the one in that bit. All of my correction bits have rollers on the bars on the mouthpiece. They also make a spoon bit with an actual roller in the center of the port.
