    I heard the sizing is different for this brand - what's the closest thing to a DW SM4UX mouthpiece?

    I think I heard that once. The funny thing is that if you're worried about technical skill - you could totally mess that suite up, and no one would be able to tell you were playing it wrong. :D...

    I will chime in too, since I have a 642 Neo also - but mouthpieces are very personal, so you'll have to choose what feels and works well with you.
