Metal mouthpieces

Are tenor saxophone metal mouthpieces harder to play? I am considering getting one but I don't know if it would be too hard. Any coments would be apreciated. Thank you.

    I have played several times on an Otto Link Super Tone Master on a tenor and I found it fairly easy to play on. Just need the right tip opening that you can play on. It may take some time to get used too as well.

    they just take some time to get used to. it takes tighter lips, but thats about it.

        Playing on metal mouthpiece and regular concert mouthpiece were pretty similar for me, just the metal was louder + brighter and i had to find the right type of reed.
