Plasticover Reeds

I was asked if Plasticover Reeds are good for beginners.

The short answer is NO!  Plasticover reeds respond differently, have a different sound and can make playing the instrument more difficult,

Now having said that I play Plasticover reeds on both clarinet and baritone saxophone.  I am likely one of the few people on the planet that play Plasticover reeds on a clarinet but I produce a respectable tone and have good control with the reeds.
