Yes. I feel this way about cane as well. One less-common approach that can work well is this: select your reed, then find a mouthpiece that works well with it. That is essentially what happens when we choose synthetic unless we were lucky enough to already have a match.
Legere Sigs work really well with my Larry Teal, but cane does not. Alternatively, my Concept sings with V12s, but less so with other reeds including Legere Sig. Keep in mind that I am always seeking the final .5%. “It works,” is not good enough for me.
