    Default Spinoff: Alternative to recalled Happy Mouth?

    Interested in some thoughts on an alternative bit to one of the recalled Happy Mouths. My gelding usually goes in a Sprenger Duo, but I sometimes use the Happy Mouth full cheek that is being recalled (roller mouth). I can't take the risk of ignoring the recall, so I'm looking for some other alternatives.

    The next-best thing I've come up with (and had used in the past, before I got the HM) was a Sealtex-wrapped double-jointed bit... but the HM is better.

    There is a double-jointed Happy Mouth bit with a roller that is not part of the recall (only the ones with the wire running though them is just an issue with the wire).
