If this is in response to my post, I hope you will re-read what I wrote!
I said that Richard Hawkins was the original maker of Greg Smith
mouthpieces....that is....he made them, Smith tried them and approved or
disapproved, and then Smith marketed them. Hawkins now makes his own, and
Smith continues to market his own as well......under his name (as
before)...the only difference is that Hawkins made the original Smith
mouthpieces for the first year. Now he doesn't.
