Which Reed For Van Doren 5RV?

I am looking for some new reeds for the above mouthpiece.

The internet doesn’t provide much information.

Can anyone help me?

I am a casual player and I have a 60s Vito plastic student model.

Reeds are a totally individual thing. My favorite reed may very well not work at all for you. So the best I can do is tell you what's comfortable for this intermediate jazz player on that size tip opening on my Vito plastic clarinet, which is Vandoren blue box 2.5 or 3.0. A similar D'darrio would be 3.0-3.5. Since you can buy individual Vandoren reeds, I recommend you buy just one to try, and if it doesn't work, go up or down in strength as needed.
As variable as reeds are, don't trust a single reed when trying out new reeds, it might be a dud.
