This high-quality double-jointed shim (eggbutt) is made of solid Cuprigan with stainless steel rings. Cuprigan is an alloy consisting of 89% copper, 7% aluminum, 3% iron and 1% zinc. The oxidation process of the material gives a pleasant smell and taste. The anatomical design follows the shape of the horse's mouth, creating a soft and even pressure distribution. Due to the combination of the design and the unique composition of Cuprigan, the chewing process and saliva formation are stimulated, so that a fine connection can be created with the sensitive horse's mouth. The bit has a normal effect on the mouth. The mouthpiece has a thickness of 12 mm and the bit rings have a diameter of 50 mm.
Eggbutt has rings that cannot rotate freely, so aids have a more direct effect. This type of bit is generally well accepted because the mouthpiece is relatively firm in the mouth.
The underlay is used in combination with a dressage bar. The small rings leave more space for the dressage bar. It is advisable to use a washer about 0.5 - 1 cm larger than the bar.
With a double-broken bit, the mouthpiece consists of three parts. The middle part of the mouthpiece lies flat on the tongue. This puts more pressure on the tongue than with a single broken mouthpiece. The thicker the middle part, the more pressure on the tongue.
