    Shires Sweet Iron Bevel Bit is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Control without being too much I received this bit as a gift for my welsh cross pony mare, as she and I have been through at least 10 bits so far trying to find one that works. She can be fussy but I find the but moves just enough to keep her happy yet doesn’t encourage her to be mouthy. She is pretty “hot”, especially when she gets excited cantering or jumping, but is also sensitive as a whole. This bit gives warning before engaging leverage and the leverage is mild enough that I don’t upset her. The copper and sweet iron seem fine on mine. Some rust but this is normal and expected.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Bought this bit to try because I couldn’t find an all copper mouth piece cheaply, and wasn’t sure if horse would like it. After the second ride I saw that apparently the sweet iron is only a coating, because it had flaked off in multiple areas. No, it wasn’t rust, there was some rust but that is expected. My horse doesn’t really chew or fuss with bits, so for this to happen after 1-2 rides is terrible. Returning immediately, very thankful SmartPak is easy to work with.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs small My horse is very picky when it comes to bits and can get very heavy when he's uncomfortable, and he goes very well in this bit. The thickness is perfect and the copper link isn't too big. However, this bit runs small. The 6" option would probably be best. Sweet Iron bits are supposed to rust (it's not a defect or sign of poor quality), so be aware of that! Only clean the bit with water, as a cleaning agent will change the sweet taste.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Incredibly disappointed don’t waste your money Incredibly disappointed don’t waste your money!! Are used this twice and it rusted!! Yes I rinsed it off and cleaned it after each use so I spent all this money and got a junky bet that I’m now stuck with it’s worthless and I can’t use it. Entire mouth piece

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bit Fabulous quality, love the thickness of the mouthpiece and placement of copper to encourage the horse to salivate. Can use with leverage hooks or without depending on the level of the horse. Wonderful bit for hacking or low level jumping at home

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Runs small Bought a 5" as my current horse horse most definitely goes in a 5" It's far too small and pinches in the corner of his mouth. When held next to numerous other 5" bits, it's noticeably smaller - probably 1/4-1/2" In terms of the actual bit and its use - it provides the mild leverage needed for a little extra half halt on xc
