    Bit Converter is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Correct pricepoint I was a little disappointed that SmartPak only carries one brand of bit converters. That being said, they do their job sufficiently. They are not made of high quality leather (which could be inferred from their price) and required a bit of conditioning. They also maintain a reddish tint and the black trim found at the seems of the leather looked like it was put on a little sloppy. I would recommend them if you are not picky or in a bind, but I will be looking for another pair for my show bridle.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult to attach! I bought this to simulate double reins on a kimberwicke bit. I soaked them in oil but they were so stiff I could barely bend them around to attach the second side. The trainer had a set with a buckle attachment which made it very easy to take on and off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased! Love these bit converters. They match my Antares show bridle perfectly!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kind of funky I bought these being the only choice I had. When they arrived I was excited to see how they looked. Well lets just say in the least I was disappointed, the color was kind of like a LIGHT LIGHT brown almost orange . I'm hoping that oil will fix them right up! As for the quality of the leather is seems fair, very stiff out of the package.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good quality for the price the leather is nice and doesn't look inexpensive...it is a great price for the quality.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worth the price Firstly, I would have liked more choices for this type of product. Having this as the only choice forced me into buying because it is something that I needed.Secondly, I needed this in black for my dressage bridle, so the bright brown color is not desired, personally.Thirdly, these are so thick, stiff, and cumbersome, too large to stay out of the way. They are clumsy in staying in place on the bit and made me feels as if they were holding the shank of my Pelham at an odd angle because they were too large and stiff to fit the correct angle.They also already have a small rip/tear in the material from one ride.If you need them to carry one set of reins, they will work, And are very affordable, but may not be quite as sensitive as some riders may find necessary to communicate with your horse with any sort of nuance. I will keep them for students, but am buying curb reins.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Good Little Gadgets! I like having a pair of these on hand for the off-chance I've got a bit that's designed to go with 2 reins and I'd rather ride with one. If you're a major bit collector or are just riding a lot of different horses they're great to have around!Leather is a bit stiff, not the highest of quality ever but not poor quality either. For the price, they do the job just fine!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good enough for me. These bit converters are too stiff for my liking, and mine were orange! Oil fixed them right up, but they're not something I'd step into a hunter ring with. You're doing yourself a favor to learn to ride with double reins!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What Was Needed I am training a draft horse to go in a less harsh bit, a pelham, and I didn't want to have the hassle of two reins. These bit converters were exactly what I needed, and at the right price. SmartPak is becoming more impressive every day with their selection... especially when other companies aren't carrying the same quality, or the product at all.These converters have done their job, held up very well and made a big draft horse, very, very happy. :) I highly recommend these converters to anyone who has the need for them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Converter Leather will match most bridles and it accepts oil. Stays put and does its job - what more can you ask for?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality. These bit converters are a quality item at a great price. Tough construction with a nice look.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for price Leather a little stiff, but great value for price and once you oil and soften leather they work great.
    Date published: 2009-09-04
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product! This bit converter is exactly what i needed! I use it on a pellum bit so that I only need one set of reins. I ride endurance, so having two sets of reins is way to complicated and confusing. My only complaint is that this is a little long for my bit; it would be nice to have a few different sizes to choose from. But it works just fine and is great-quality!
