Just enjoy it if it's working. Dick Oatts has always played one and Charles McPherson often has. I've never heard anything but great tones from both of them.
Problems with consistency don't matter if you're just talking about one mouthpiece that you own. I have a nice 90/1 and though I haven't played it for years, I didn't find they varied too much when I bought it (I tried some recently and they all felt quite good).I know other people have had different experiences though.
