I think the HH medium is probably closer to a Fibracell 3. The HH medium soft is somewhere between a 2 and a 2.5.

Is there a break in period with Harry Hartman Fibereed Carbon reeds? Also, I use a 3 Fibracell on bari. Would that be like a M Fibereed?
No break in required. They just play. I use a MS Carbon Fiberreed, and also Fibracell 2.5 on bari and find them similar. The HH may be just a touch softer. It's a bit hard to tell because the HH reeds are so free blowing. The M should be close to a 3.

Hard to say. I usually have two or three Fibracells in rotation for big band gigs, and use the HH for my rock gigs. I've been using the HH for well over a year. Gigs once or twice a month and a couple rehearsals per month. I don't use the HH when practicing so they will last longer. ou do need to be careful with the tip on the HH. They will chip. Having said that, I have an old one with a couple dings in the tip and it still plays pretty well.
