    Default Seemingly impossible bit to find! 6 inch Baucher with a Lozenge

    This is stumping me and annoying me! I am trying to find (in the US preferable) a 6 inch Baucher with with a Lozenge/bean in the middle. Doesn't really matter who makes it or what metal it's made from, we just want to find one to TRY. So far, it seems like Neue Schule makes one called the "Tranz Angled Lozenge Baucher" only it doesn't seem to be available in size 6 inch in the US or in the UK! Herm Sprenger makes the "KK Conrad Ultra "B" Ring Snaffle" only that doesn't seem to come above size 5.75. Stubben makes a "Steeltec Baucher Bit" only that doesn't seem to come above size 5.5. Am I looking for something impossible to find?

    Where did you see that the Neue bit can't be ordered in a 6in? I selected the 6in and proceeded to checkout without it telling me I couldn't order that size. It even recommends Airmail shipping to the US.........Did you try to order it?

    Southerncomfort, I can't seem to find any boucher bits on that website?! Am I missing them?

    Oh wait, I see, they have them under "snaffles." No bouchers with a lozenge there's a French Link and a plain jointed but none with the bean in the middle

    Find the bit you want in a pelham and have the shanks cut off. Instant Baucher.

    Try to find a tack store in your area that carries Dewsbury bits. They make a boucher in a 6" size. It generally doesn't take too long to order one in from the manufacturer, but they are very pricy.
