The Twisted Max has a 1" draw action with a no pinch ball hinge for greater comfort and just the right amount of draw on the shanks. The Sweet Iron Lifesaver Port is a unique mouthpiece with control in between a chain mouth and a hinge port. It provides more independent shoulder control along with tongue relief, allowing the rider to help the sensitive horse in the turn. Gives you bar, tongue, palate and curb tension, while the loose ring pre-signals the horse for better balance. This bit is rated high for lift and moderate for rate and whoa. A ?must have? for Barrel Racers and Ropers.
