Does anyone know where I could find a Dr Bristol Baucher in at least a 5 1/2" preferably a 5 3/4"? I found one on Equussport.com but it's $125 with no explanation as to why it's that pricey, plus I'd rather not pay that much!

Comes in both 5 1/2" and 5 3/4".

The price would include VAT, which I believe is taken off for US orders.

A Dr Bristol Baucher is not a very common bit, which is likely at least partly why it is so expensive. Also, everything from Equussport is expensive, because they are mainly a specialty/custom company.

Thanks Pattnic, have you ever ordered from them before? I've never ordered from outside of the US.

KateMccall- those are French link mouth pieces, I'm wanting the flat Dr Bristol piece in the middle.

Keep the suggestions coming!

I've not personally ordered from them, but I believe others on here have. I love that they have a bit trial program - I've *almost* used it several times - lol!

I have ordered a few times from the UK from other sellers and not had any problems. They have lots of bits over there that we don't have here.
