Alto sax reeds on alto clarinet?

Hello, size-wise alto sax reeds seem to fit the mouthpiece of an alto clarinet. Is something to say against the usage of alto sax reeds?

Just tried Yamaha 5C mouthpiece with 3.5 Fibracell Premium artificial reed. Works very well, so it seems.
Any other recommendations for that MPs reed-wise?

Thanks, I understand it's all a matter of experimentation. Having so many alto sax reeds I guess I'll find some suitable ones for the alto clarinet. If it sounds right it is right, after all :)
Thanks for all responses. My current experience is, that alto sax reeds actually work better than the few alto clarinet reeds (Vandoren) I have tried (but then, I'm not such a great fan of Vandoren reeds on other horns as well, they are well made and all, but often too bright for my taste).
