^^^^^ That's the best articulated explanation. Thanks @Horned Toad .

If one is going to study vintage mouthpiece design and setup (as I have for 30 years) it is best not to take everything at face value. Just because these (some) pieces were done in a particular way does not automatically mean it was intentional or preferable. We must remember that in most cases the driving factor in mouthpiece production was profit. If the way Otto Links and Dukoffs were produced was an indicator of 'best functional practices' then they would not so often play like crap..."
