I like the ligatures a great deal and really like the carbon fiber model. I normally play the Silverstein Estro and I have been quite happy with it. The carbon fiber seems to focus the sound a bit more for me, without losing the resonance. It would also be much easier to make fast clarinet switches from A to Bb clarinet. This is the Achilles heel of the Silverstein. I think they are both good ligatures, but the carbon fiber really works well for me, LOVE IT!
