What reeds should I buy?

Hi everyone :)

I've been playing clarinet for over 10 years now and have decided I want to learn how to play alto saxophone! 

I have bought a yamaha yas280 alto sax and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations on what reeds I should buy as I have no idea where to start.  

On clarinet I am at grade 6/7 level and play with Vandoren traditional strength 3.

Thank you for the help!

    Since you're new to sax,  I suggest try a somewhat softer reed than you're using on clarinet, something like a Vandoren 2 1/2.
