What I thought:
1)I also had a Selmer C85. It needs more breath support than Vandoren 5RV,B40,B44,and B45,which I had used too.It may be better to change to a more free blowing mouthpiece.
2)V12 reeds are for mouthpieces with long facing and small tip clearance such as B40 or M13.I would use traditional Vandoren or Rico Gland Concert Thick for C85. If V12 3.5 is used now,Rico Grand Concert Thick 3.0 will match.I would not take Rico Grand Concert Thick 'Blank',which has more thicker heel.But I used for long time traditional Vandren 2.5 with a Vandoren 2RV,now not commercially available.
3)Also,your hiss may come from left-right sides unbalance of the reed.His home page has a literature on how to test and adjust the reeds: http://home1.gte.net/klarinet/
4)Another idea came up to me:when I was young,it took very much hours to learn how to adjust reeds and because of this my practice time was decreased substancially.Now I hear a good plastic reed is available such as Legere. I would practice clarinet using this hi-tec reed while learning how to adjust cane reeds.
