Hi Scorcher.

No, I only buy the hand-made low D Sp20s.  I can't get on with those Big 
River covers at all (I'm probably not the right shape!).  On the few 
occasions I've used the MS low D plates, I've had real problems with reeds 
going south almost straight away.  I speak as I find!

All the best
