Thanks for the replys. The Metalites have a high "lake" baffle, and a small throat. Open tip. Meant to play loud in a Big Band setting. I didn't like it on an R13, but it was Okay on an old Noblet with a Legere 2.5.
i used to have one of those. couldn't get it to focus with any reed i tried, and it was massively flat on all my clarinets. it wasn't too much louder then my classical pieces, and what it had in volume it lost in projection due to lack of focus. i sold it on ebay for like twelve bucks a couple of months ago.
