Reed strength suggestion on ALTA Ambipoly Tenor Saxophone Reed - Classic?

Considering buying the ALTA Ambipoly Tenor Saxophone Reed Classic which I can order through my local music shop. I currently play 2.5 Ricoh, La Voz Med-Soft. I also have Select Jazz 2H which are a bit too strong for me. I'm thinking either the 2.5 or the 2+ for the ALTA. As they are expensive and will take awhile to get to me I'd like to hopefully order the right strength from the get go. Any suggestions?

If you're currently playing jazz-style cane reeds, why are you trying the Alta Classic rather than the Alta Jazz model? The Classic sounds nice, but is pretty resistant.

As to strength, I haven't tried the Alta Classic on tenor, but I have tried it on alto and soprano. My comments, along with those of other early testers, are in this thread:
