I recently bought the green and gray reeds. I found them both very easy to use with great sounds. I do like the bugle better on the gray reed but would not hesitate on the green. They both fit well and do not make me gag like most reeds. The only thing bad I have is the taste. They both have a real bitter taste. Just for reference I also use Gooserbat, Wapiti River and the trusty Carlton's 2.5.
