The kimberwicke has a fixed mouthpiece, in that there are no joints to it. The little barrel rolls, but the mouthpiece itself is a straight bar with a tongue relief (port). The Myler Dee is a jointed mouthpiece that allows each side to swivel independent from the other. The Dee is almost zero leverage, the kimberwicke has a small degree of leverage to a greater degree, depending on where you put the reins. A bit designed for leverage will have a place for a curb chain or strap built into the design.
