Vandoren Optimum mouthpiece

I have been playing a tenor sax for about 4 years. I currently use an Optimum TL3. Would there be a benefit to using on Optimum TL4?

    The TL4 is just slightly larger at the tip opening. The only reason to consider switching is if you feel like you're having to play on harder reeds than what you are confortable with of if you feel like you're getting a more flabby souund than what you want. You can typically play on about a 1/4 to 1/2 strenth reed less on a TL3 compared to a TL4. If you can get to a place to play test, that would be ideal.
