Although I don't have them in hand to take measurements, I copied some pictures off of the Internet and tried to reposition them for comparison. I couldn't find a Profile 88 picture with an actual side view as I could with the Morgan.

I would really like to hear from anybody who has had both and actually compared them.

I resized the Morgan picture to equal a mouthpiece that I had and noticed that the beak section was actually 1/8" shorter when looked at horizontally.

I'm interested in what you think. Are they basically the same for a Brand 34 or 36 facing or is the Morgan actually flatter in that area?

Also, which one is more comfortable in your opinion? Or, do they feel the same?

p.s. Here's a clickable link to the Morgan website in which the side view of the mouthpiece is expandable.
