Properties of the straight mouthpiece:
A straight mouthpiece often works sharper than a single or double broken mouthpiece. The shape of the mouthpiece determines where the pressure will lie in the mouth. A straight mouthpiece with tongue / port gives more pressure on the layers and keeps the tongue free. The straighter and thicker the mouthpiece, the more pressure on the tongue.
