Otto link

So I was looking at this metal Otto link at wwbw. It's not the vintage one but the $150 one. I heard these have had some quality problems coming out of the factory. Is this true? And if it's not a bad mouthpiece at all why only $150? Thanks

    I don't know if this is anomaly, but i ordered an Otto Link from wwbw last year and the baffle was skewed at a 30 degree angle.

      I've had some Links that played well out of the box and some that were dogs. Best to try several out and pick the best one. And use new reeds for your tryouts.

          Well that's just dandy. So the only real option I have is to try one out at the shop and if it works, it works?

          You can order more than one from WWBW and return the dogs, keep the one you like.
