This Bombers Buster Roller Butterfly Flip Bit has a blue sweet iron mouthpiece with a central roller.
The blue sweet iron Buster Roller mouthpiece from Bombers Bits has a 40mm roller link in the centre. This increases tongue and bar pressure, making the bit stronger than conventional double jointed bits. The double joint reduces the 'nutcracker' action associated with single joint bits, meaning the bit will not put pressure on the top of the horse's palate.
This mouthpiece is often suitable for horses with a low head carriage that tend to lean on the bit. The increased pressure on the bars acts to lift the head while the roller increases pressure on the tongue, bringing the chin in and encouraging the horse to soften as he plays with the roller.
The blue sweet iron mouthpiece oxidises easily, creating a warm, sweet taste in the horse's mouth. This encourages the horse to salivate, gently mouth the bit and relax his jaw, and can help horses who have difficulty accepting conventional metal bits.
The Butterfly Flip cheekpieces are formed in a D-shape, with the hooks offering three different rein positions to vary the amount of poll pressure and leverage exerted. The reins can be moved around the bit rings to give varying degrees of control.
Please note that the blue will fade with use.
