    Question Where to find used bit?

    Since HRH seems to prefer the $150 bits (of course - why am I not surprised...) I would like to acquire another one but my checkbook would highly prefer a used one! This is so I don't have to continue swapping the one bit I bought from a friend between my Dressage and Jumping bridle.
    Any websites out there to find used bits (KK in particular?)

    Stalk eBay and be prepared to be patient. You can set it up so you have a 'favorite search' and they'll email you any new auctions that fit the descriptions of what you want, so you don't miss anything.

    The more patient you are, the cheaper you can get what you want. I got a KK B-Ring for $50 this way.

    I say eBay as well, there are always bits on there-some for REALLY cheap. Not as many KK's, but they do show up. Lots of Mylers, if you want one of those.

    All three of my local tack shops have a box of used bits. Two places you have to ask someone for the box, but they are there.

    My trainer has bits that are older than she is, which makes them my age or better. That won't get you a KK but you never know what thy've bought and don't want anymore.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. None of them have what I am looking for but I will keep checking back on those sites.
    Also is there a difference between the KK Ultra and the Dynamic RS Aurigan? Is the latter just a newer model or is there a difference in the mouthpiece?

    I would love to know the answer to what Bearcat just asked, too about the Dynamic RS versus the KK. (BTW I love the sig line!) I have had good luck finding useful bits of various kinds on eBay, and am glad someone reminded me/us about the Bits And Barter board.

    I was in this store last week, and they had bunches of used bits, and some new with tags. You'd have to call them, I don't see the bits on the website.

    I got my Ultra KK Baucher on eBay for $60. I was a very happy lady the day that auction ended.
