Anyone started (ie backed) a horse using a bitless bridle?

If so, what bridle would you recommend?

At present, we are using a drop noseband (not tight) with reins on each side, which works nicely but possibly not ideal.

I've always used western type ones so not much help on a particular brand, sorry. A rope nose is going to exert more pressure than a flat leather/biothane/beta one obviously.
