    hey Jim, i recently got a otto link 5* tenor mouthpiece and at first it was hard getting use to it but, the only advice i can give to you is to keep on practicing on the otto link and leave the rubber mouthpiece alone until you get use to the otto link because believe it or not the otto link will improve your tone on your saxophone and will make playing the other mouthpiece easy and will allow you to control the way you play better. So dont give up and keep on practicing with the Otto Link.

      You might try a softer reed too. Depending on what reed you are using, the Otto Link 7 is a pretty open piece. Try a #2 reed and see how it works for you, and like Saxman said, just practice until you are comfortable with it. It might take a few weeks to get used to the Otto Link, but they are a great mouthpiece for tenor. I use a Link also.
