If you would describe your horse as something with the following;
Nils is a stable barrel sweet taste bit.
The barrel tube has a natural fast lock in any direction. A steady model for horses who needs to seek more contact without getting too stiff. A very comfortable bit that shapes naturally over the tongue.
We design them that way to keep the balance point (BP) in the mouth. If you have a bigger bend forward, you will also move the BP forward and slowing down the process of your aids. More stable and less confusing for your horse.
Nils has Fager's patented Baby Fulmer cheeks. They are curved to avoid pressure on the horse's face. The Baby Fulmers will keep the mouthpiece stable inside the mouth. The endings are kept straight with the same thickness all the way, to keep the rings stable.
