The Ported Pivot combines the best functions of the Happy Tongue and the Ported Barrel. The Ported Pivot allows for a similar tongue relief to the Happy Tongue, spreading pressure onto the bars. The bar pressure is softened due to the curved nature of the mouthpiece. The mouthpiece is jointed in the center by an unseen pin that allow for independent lateral aids like the Ported Barrel.
The mouthpiece is a semi-broken mouthpiece and will hinder creating a squeeze on the bars – the joint hinders the mouthpiece to fold backwards therefore creating little, to no squeeze on the bars. T
he Ported Pivot is available in Sweet Iron. The Sweet Iron material was chosen as a metal option as it oxidizes. Oxidization encourages salivation and acceptance of the mouthpiece.
