I was playing tips around 110 for a while but then I wanted to play some harder reeds so I moved down a bit to pieces closer to 100. Now I'm playing Vandoren ZZ 3.5 reeds and loving the projection afforded by the stiffer reed. I don't run out of air as fast, and intonation is better. The sound is a little less big, and more focused, but I like it. Those baffled pieces play well with big tips and softer reeds, but if you want to go in the other direction, just get a smaller tip and start trying some new reeds. If you go smaller than 100 and work at it, you'll probably be able to get into the size 4 and extra hard reed strengths.
