New v16's

Has anyone tried the new v16's. They come in a much bigger box and are individually wrapped in a green sealed plastic. The label reads "barrier packaging". It also claims each reed is sealed at ideal humidity level.

A piece of adive on the insert states that the reeds should be kept at a humidity level between 45% and 70%. How is that done?

Actually, its not a flow pack. Vandoren is now packaging ALL of their reeds this way. Boxes of 5 (Tenor, Bari, Bass Clar etc), and all boxes of 10 are all individually wrapped now.
We must still have a too much stock on the old stuff in our warehouse since I haven't seen the new 5's and 10's individually wrapped...I think that's an awesome idea though!
I've tried the V16's within the flow pack..they are just like the other ones...nothing big to speak of...
