I play on strictly vandoren reeds (except for oboe). I use the red boxes java's on saxes and rue lepic on clarinet. Every now and then I pull out a tradtional (blue box) reed. No matter what size, they all just play stiff and feel too thick.

Anyone else run into this? I'm not lookin for new reeds to play on, and I have no problem with Vandoren overall; just that their traditional reeds feel so weird compared to the rest.

Thoughts? Opinions?

Vandoren has a nice chart on their web site comparing how their different models of reeds are cut. It sort of answers your question.
