Default EZDrone Reeds for Border pipes

I own a magnificent set of Ray Sloan border pipes and I would like to try a set of EZ drones reeds since I have had such a good experience with them in my GHBs. Here's the problem, the EZ drone reeds are customized to fourteen different makes of border pipes but Ray Sloan is not on the list. Does anyone have any experience with, or knowledge of what set might work (or not work) in my pipes?

Thanks,
David

I would just shoot Pipe Dreams an email and ask. I imagine they'd be happy to let you try one or two sets to see what works.

You'll want to measure the reed seat of your drones with some brass tubing or a drill bit. A friend of mine had some EZdrone smallpipe reeds that were a bit too big for the bores of my drones.

Maybe a better idea in California than in Michigan, methinks
