Get ahold of me. We can change the stretch if we know that you will be bending them (we do it quite often).  Also with high narrow palates we can the radiused plate and bend it up for a better fit.

Also we have something in the works that may help but itís probably a year off.
What's the best way to reach you? I've tried for a while and have received no response. I tried emailing and calling (left 3 messages).

I looked more into it after this post and ordered one from rocky and the primos 3 pack


My wife has to buy the 3 pack to get the blue.
It's the only one she has found that fits.
Let me know how it goes.
Good luck.

The width and size of the outter part of the reed isn't the problem as much as it is the internal metal.. almost like it needs to be shaped like a ball cap bill to fit.
Roadhuntking, I have the same problem but I noticed a couple years ago that the more I use the reed, after it gets broke in, the metal interior will form to my palate. The phelps reeds I use anyway.
To God alone be the Glory!!

The old yellow ones from rocky are the only ones that were ever consistent for me then they switched the latex and never again felt right.. switched to the phelps and is a touch better but still super inconsistant which bar far obviously not the reeds fault just my weird shaped palate lol

Any luck with suggestions here? I bought the rocket mountain kids one and several elk101 calls and yet yo find one that even comes close to sealing to the roof of my mouth. The diaphragm never stays in the roof of my  mouth since the roof of my mouth is so narrow. Frustrating
