I  tried Vandoren (blue,red,Java), Rico, Lavos, Gonzales... and finally, I have found out that the Hemke is the best for me on Tenor.

I like regular Vandoren reeds. I use them on tenor and with one of my mouthpieces on alto. I have tried Alexander NY reeds on tenor but switched back to Vandoren after a couple bad batches. My RPC alto mouthpiece was designed to be used with Rico Jazz Select reeds but I haven't settled on a strength yet with those.
