Rico was handing them out at ClarinetFest, and I got a packet of 3 - 4,
4.5, and 5. the 5 played nicely for me - a bit light compared to the
reeds I make, but with decent cane. I liked them better than the Grand
Concert samples I've gotten over the years - better cane. I gave the 4
and 4.5 to a student, who played them and liked the a great deal. She
uses Vandoren V12, and found the strength to be pretty much equivalent,
and the quality on the same level as the Vandorens.

That's all I know.
