Yes.

Only fault I had with Canning痴 was the body absorbed moisture...swelling... then the carefully set bridles needed to be re-adjusted to avoid shut off. And re-adjusted again when dry.
Have not had such issue with EZ. Otherwise both great reeds imo.

Personal preference.

In my experience the Cannings are one of the 'smoothest' set of reeds. Nominal and warm. The Blue plastic body set were made to solve the moisture issues if that becomes a problem, though I haven't experienced this with either set of Cannings. The Ezeedrones I feel have a bit more buzz which resonates well with the chanter. To my ears Ezeedrones can also be a touch 'nasaly' or 'stuffy' when compared to other reeds that sounds more 'open'. Both excellent reeds.

Yes I live down here in Texas, where it tends to get very humid here

True in the eastern and southern parts of the state, not true in North Texas, West Texas, or the Trans-Pecos. I lived in El Paso and the humidity there is about 10%, very dry, but can get very hot during the summer.

Whenever you compare two things you'll prefer one over the other. Whether that difference is meaningful is another question.



In this case, the instrument and the pressure at which it is to be played would have a bearing on that.
