 New to Oboe

Hi, Lifelong musician here- brand new to oboe/double reeds but always wanted to play double reeds. Recently borrowed a student oboe and beginners book. Made pretty good beginners progress (considering the limited time available...), but ran into a quick dead end with the lower register (below F#) and especially the forked F fingering which I can't get to sound at all about 95% of the time. With the octave key pressed it's fine. Is this a usual problem? Any suggestions?

Also, I'm looking to replace the reed as part of troubleshooting. Any thoughts on Lakota reeds? Any others you'd recommend for a beginner? I imagine I should stick with medium soft until the embouchure strengthens?
