    I roll my bottom lip in over my bottom teeth and pucker my top lip and have no problem with control, endurance, or range.

    I used to use the type 4, starting in about 5th grade, because it helped me play high notes. No one noticed it until 7th grade, and then I fixed it, because my tone got horrible.
    Now I use pretty much even, maybe a little more top lip, with a little top lip roll, and normal bottom lip.

    But there's not much you can get from others. You have to experiment, and see what gives you notes you can control, with endurance and good tone.
