I thought you might like to know that the prototype for the Warburton heavyweight mouthpiece, which I have been using and plugging on this BBS (with a modifdied rim it is called the Warburton Neilan), was different that the ones Terry actually produced late last year. The production ones were several ounces heavier. He sent me a production one recently and I found it a little too heavy for my taste (yes, there can definitely be too much of a good thing!). I sent the prototype back to Terry for exact measurements and I believe he will be making the new ones according to that one instead of the heavier one and possibly remachining the ones he has in stock to lighten them, or renaming them superheavyweights. If you are serious about this piece, you may want to ask him about this.
