Thanks for the post. I have a huge dislike of Rovners of any sort that are like it. I bought Marc Jean custom that is extremely nice but it needs to be returned to be refitted. In the meantime I am using a "H" Rico ligature.On my Soprano Gaia I am using a Rovner ligature.
I do have the Theo Wanne ligature that is milled out into a angular ring with a pressure plate that screws down.
Generally I like the pressure plate BUT, the Gaia mouthpiece is so hard that the ligature slides off and will not hold in place.
A Brancher ligature similarly slides off because the Gaia's material is so hard that these slide down the taper.
My Rover works well. Visually it is bulky on a soprano mouthpiece but does not get in the way.
