Bombers Bits Eggbutt Elliptical 38 | Sweet Iron Blue Bit

Bombers Equestrian


Category: Sweet Iron


The Eggbutt cheekpiece prevents pinching of the lips and give a slightly more solid feel against the side of the face. It also prevents the bit being pulled through the mouth. The release is slower and also introduces some poll pressure.

The Elliptical is a double jointed bit, with a lozenge in the middle.

The Elliptical link in the centre is 38mm which is slightly smaller than the standard Elliptical link. This takes some of the pressure off the tongue and places it on the bars encouraging the horse to lift his head, while the lozenge encourages the horse to come towards the vertical.

Entirely Handcrafted in South Africa

Sweet Iron

All Bomber Blue Bits are made from blue sweet iron, because it:

  • oxidizes easily
  • encourages salivation
  • helps bit acceptance
  • is warm and sweet compared to stainless steel

Please note that due to the oxidization the blue will fade with use as shown below.
