I think you may have misunderstood when I said "abuse". I didn't mean it in the sense that they're any less prone to damage if you drop them, for example. I meant that they're very capable of accepting a variety of playing styles and repertoire requirements than other mouthpieces without losing their tonal center or sacrificing stability. Perhaps there was a better word choice I could have made, but I think if you re-read my post now it may make more sense.

The A-Frame is essentially a compromise in design. It's a design that adds some of the advantages of a wider window (freedom in "blow-through", slightly larger scope of sound) without sacrificing the advantages of a smaller window (ease of focus, clarity, ring in the sound, etc.). Keep in mind that this is just one aspect of design and needs to balance with the rest of the mouthpiece.

Beyond the differences that I described, I think an email directly to Brad would help clarify your question further. Also, he has a very reasonable trial policy which is of course the best way to experience these mouthpieces for yourself.
