    I used to like the comfo bites, now they irritate the roof of my mouth, I used to like the generic long bite ones as sold by DGX but they now irritate my lower bottom right gum as that's where the reg pulls down slightly.

    I now use Atomic mouth pieces and although at first didn't feel as secure, was used to using hardly any bite force, they now are my mouthpiece of choice. Thanks @Rusty Shackleford

    Have you tried one of these?

    Twin-Bite Mouthpiece (6 Colors) | Dive Gear Express®

    I have a bunch of them and I have 4 Atomic regs with the stock mouthpieces that came on them.

    I cannot tell any difference between the actual Atomic ones and the ones from DGX.

    I'm also like the comfo-bite however, I like to get a new one every few months.

    Several reasons why, I tend to grind my teeth under normal conditions, so I chew the tabs almost off. That is probably the main reason but also just a the brush head on a tooth brush I feel I' better off replacing it regularly.
    I get the generic ones from dive gear express, get them by the dozen actually.

    Like someone wrote above, different people would like different types, I just wouldn't have "durable" as the main requirement, that's just me

    - never met more comfortable mouthpiece.
    Also it has nice to the feel surface, not greasy as jellyfish :)

    I will get them on the way soon Simon. I had a medical incident and am home bound till tomorrow afternoon. I learned what the word Vasovagal means the hard way and got an unplanned nap at work the other day.

    No worries at all Mike. You just take care of yourself.
