I'm with John Moses concerning Legere reeds, they are as good as it gets. That being said, I've had a couple soften after some use, and as I've mentioned elsewhere on this forum, they do respond well to adjustment. Careful and judicious clipping, scraping and sanding hardened both up about half a point with no loss of tone quality, and with no great difficulty.
