What's the Berg Larsen equivalent of Otto Link 7* Metal?

My co-fav tenor player is John Nugent (www.celebrityaccess.com/news/profile.html?id=118) the other co-fav being Frank Tiberi (www.franktiberi.com). Nuge's SOUND is unbelievable. He plays a SBA 50xxx and Otto Link 7* Metal (EARLY BABBITT SUPER TONE MASTER - 1975s), with med. hard La Voz reeds. Can anyone tell me what's the closest BERG LARSEN Metal mpc to Nuge's mid-70's Otto Link 7* ? Not concerned with the opening, I know's it's a .105. It's the Berg 0/1/2/3 chamber and the "SMS" vs "M" facing that I need help on. Thanks in advance.

    I've never compared these side by side but as no one else has commented... The closest would probably be the 105/3 M as it has no step baffle and longest facing but it would still be pretty different from a link 7* in the throat and chamber shapes. Why not just get a Link 7*?
