This is by far the best ligature that I have ever played on!
I have been playing on this ligature for two years now, and it has served me very well. The tone is pure and flexible, and the response is crisp and accurate.
My clarinet professor recommends everyone invest in an Optimum ligature, and I'm really happy with the sound I can get with it. It responds very well, and the three plates mean you can personalize the ligature. It seemed like a lot of money to spend on a ligature, but I think it is really worth the money if you're serious about your sound!
I am a HUGE advocate for metal ligatures. Metal never weakens, it just bends but can be bent back. I would never suggest a leather ligature to anyone for the fact that they muffle the sound.
The Vandoren Optimum ligature helps my reed vibrate at an optimum rate. People complain about a bright sound, but you just have to make harder reeds. Soft reeds are not good to ever play on. The bad reviews come from people who try and rely on equipment for a good sound. I LOVE this ligature both sound-wise and aesthetically.

so i recently got this for my birthday. i was using the M/O ligature that Vandoren recently released with the masters mouthpiece (which i use too). I found that this ligature was much better than the M/O. Projection was way better and tone quality were much better. I love the different pressure plates that they give but they are hard to find out how to put on and take off. look on google for it. I would definitely get this if i were you. It's not that bright as other people were saying (though it is probably just my set up) i really love the tone it adds.
