I agree, why did you replace the Oryx if you only expect the replacement to just work as well? What do you want to gain?

Well, in that case, the new one should work a lot better.

brakes are levers they have measured lengths

the ratio of overall length : and pivot to pad distance influence the cable pull demand.
