I have the LQ-590. For my metal Link STM, I've found that the "sweet spot" on the neck cork is about half way out. The same was true for the Selmer SS that I tried. This is different than most larger-chambered pieces I've tried. These can go most of way up on the cork. My RIA #9 is this way.

Bottom line is that the thicker cork seems to be needed if you are using a smaller-chambered piece since it has to set further out on the cork. For this reason, I'm going to get my soprano necks recorked a little thicker for a more secure mouthpiece fit.
