 new legere reed...goodbye cane???

has anyone else tried these for ethnic cl.??? Just got one yesterday...expected to hate it (even though I *hate* dealing with cane reeds, which is why I reluctantly decided to try it)... I ended up liking it alot, but not sure yet if it will become my reed of choice.

I put it on, no pre-wetting at all...expected to not get a sound out of it, but to my surprise it played like a dream immediately (I got a student 2.5, pro 2.25, and 2.5...have only tried the student 2.5 so far...using a V.B40 mp).

The tone was the big surpise...I imagined it would be bright, or buzzy...but it is very mellow... much more so than the cane Rico and V. I have been using.

Some notes on my cl. now seem much more strong and full sounding, yet others seem a little weaker, and flatter...mostly the throat-ers...but it is not a radical diff...just a bit, which I think will clear up as I use it more.

Looking forward to trying it more over the weekend, and hearing from anyone else who has used them.
