Forest, I'm figuring that you know the answer already if you thought
of it, but for those who don't, the thickness has zero to do with the
strength. A #3 will be the same dimensions as the #5 - the difference
is the density of the cane. Fibres have to do with the density, not
the cut.

How does a finishing cut, making a reed thicker or thinner, make any
difference in the closeness of "fibres"?

Just a thought...
