somebody here, who have experience with the Marcinkiewicz 10 vs the Marcinkiewicz 11,

I haven't used a 10, but I'm back on and enjoying my 11.  I'm also interested in this information.

When you say "nearly the same," I assume you mean according to the published specifications.  Marcinkiewicz seems to have an unusual classification system for his mouthpieces.  As far as I can make it out, the numbering system refers to cup volume; this generally corresponds to cup depth, but you'll notice that a small increment in inner rim diameter is accompanied (on the whole) with a larger increment in cup depth as you compare adjacent "sizes".

The 12C and 15, for example, have idenfical specifications, but I suspect that the shape of the cup (more funnel-shaped for the non-C pieces) makes the 15 cup size a step smaller.

Now, what all that means in terms of playing characetristics ...

If it's not worth doing, it's not worth doing well.
