You may be right, but I don't really understand why.Well, my thought was that with a longer facing you're moving the break in the curve further back towards a thicker part of the reed, so the harder reed would be less responsive and more resistant, and you'd want a softer reed to compensate.
I have to disagree, unless again I'm misunderstanding. But I'd also have to say just because something is on the internet doesn't make it right. It may be useful if you can track that site down because there may be more to it of course.I'd also read (I can't remember which mpc site I saw it on though, I'll have to track it down) that a longer facing plays like a larger tip opening, and since larger tip openings want a softer reed...
