Legere reeds are made from a special polymer compound with a very fine microtexture. They have low density, so that they float, just like cane reeds.
This hi-tec material is designed to mimic the properties of damp cane as closely as possible. The lifespan of these synthetic style reeds can be reportedly months and make a great, consistent sound.
The Signature Cut Legere has a thinner tip than the Classic model with a view to being more flexible and agile in articulationg. It is a thinner overall profile so take care to ensure your ligature securely holds the reed down.
In terms of strength the 2.5 and 3 are similar to a Vandoren V12 in the equivalent strengths (ie Softer than a blue box Vandoren). The 2.75 is between a blue box Vandoren 2.5 and 3 - a comonly requested strength.

Never tried a synthetic reed before and only a clarinet learner but love the difference it makes in the tone.
