Ligature sizes?

A while ago I bought a Claude Lakey Apollo 7* and recently bought a ligature for it. Rover Dark 2R. But the ligature is much too large and will not hold the reed securely. I'm no expert, so maybe there's something I'm missing? Or should I just get the Claude Lakey compass ligature and see how that fairs?

    Re: Ligature sizes?

    Fitting a ligature to your mouthpiece should be no great mystery if you know its diameter.  Anyone selling a ligature should know the diameters that are within its range of adjustment.  If someone is unable to provide you with that information they are not competent to be selling ligatures.
