 What strength Fibracell to try?

So, I'd like to try a Fibracell with my Bb clarinet (M13 Lyre, Yamaha 450). I currently play with either a Legere Classic 3 1/4 or Vandoren 3 1/2, preferring the Legere. What strength Fibracell would compare to these?

It’s been awhile but I think I would try #4.

I don't have experience of them on clarinet, but I've tried them on sax - they run very soft. For reference, I found a 3.5 on a mouthpiece with an 8* opening too soft, so I ordered a 4.5 and that was fine. On a normal cane reed, I'd faint trying to get a sound out of a 4.5 with a mouthpiece that size.

They run soft and you can't push them as hard as a Legere.

Thanks to all for your comments. I've ordered a #4 and will see how it works.
