Personally the only time I ever use a single joint with a shank is with a gag bit (Like that jr. cow horse) or if they shank has a sweep and I absolutely don't have another option.

That bit you posted I believe is nicer than the Tom Thumb. Now, I'm not saying if a horse likes the tom thumb that he shouldn't stay in it, but the horses rarely ever like it.

That jr. cowhorse you posted is a pretty nice bit in itself. I would still rather have one with a dogbone mouthpiece.

The wonder bit has quite a bit of gag. I'm not a huge fan but I'm not against it either. Typically the gag and the sweep do make it a bit nicer than the tom thumb.
