Those Hartmann synthetic reeds with carbon look interesting.
I tried one. It delaminated and sliced my lip after about an hours playing. I wasn't so bothered about a cut lip, more about the prospect of fragments of carbon fibre (or whatever it really was) being stuck in me. A very, very expensive way to injure myself.

Colin i have a box of Alexander NY you can have consisting of 6x3 strength and 4x2 strength all new and unused, you can have them for £12 inc p&p...they ain't the duff ones left over just that i tried the three's and found them to hard then got the two's and didn't like the tone.

I'm just experimenting with a Hartman fiberreed, must say I'm quite impressed up to now!

Now I'm worried that cost me £26 but it's had 10, maybe 12 hours playing on it now without any bother, guess if it does de-laminate Reeds Direct will stand by it surely?
