My off the track thoroughbred loves his happy mouth double jointed roller bit. What kind of bit (if any) dose your horse prefer to be ridden in?

I have several horses with different bits. Level 1 loose ring myler. Loose ring Flexi rubber straight bar. Winning tongue plate Dutch gag. Double broken kk training bit. Cooper roller snaffle. Flexi rubber straight bar Pelham. The order I try them in is from top to bottom
When I finally figured out how to get my guy on the contact every time I give him the Q he just melts into the contact with the bit that he's in now
My horse only ever rides well in a full check snaffle. Anything else and he’ll flip his head or buck the entire time, he doesn’t even like bitless, I think that an off the track sorta thing, I think they like the contact
I have a horse who is much better without a bit so I ride him bitless and the other is really great with a Beris bit dee port soft, it's perfect!
