I realize that a certain amount of variation in the blow strength required is inherent in products of this type. However, there must be some test and standards that are used in determining the strength of the reeds. I have found that your products are very good but that you can do some work in reducing the variability and identification of the products that you are selling. I find it questionable to see my pipe major having to go through a box of reeds by blowing them one by one to find a reed suitable for an individual. Unfortunately, he has to do this for every reed request that he has to fulfill. Strength standards and identification would go a long way to improve your product. (John's reply: It's the age old problem of trying to standardize natural products (cane density), construction, and what each person feels is a certain strength).
