The MB 01 is the Myler alternative to the traditional single-jointed
mouthpiece commonly used in snaffle bits. The MB 01 rotates onto the
tongue to apply concentrated tongue pressure at the center barrel, but
because the mouthpiece is curved, it wraps around the bars and lips
instead of pinching.
The barrel in the center applies approximately the same pressure on the
tongue as a traditional single-jointed mouthpiece. However, the barrel
distributes the pressure more kindly and allows for each side of the bit
to be used independently.
Notes: The mouthpiece is similar to the MB 02 but the center barrel
of the MB 01 is narrower, which concentrates pressure on the center of
the tongue more than the MB 02. For more tongue relief, step up to the
The dee without hooks is a traditional "D" shaped cheek with fixed
