i have vforcre 3 reeds in my last two sleds. in my firecat i noticed easy starting and the sled ran better in the mid and low range and just as strong on the top end. just my experience thought.

I run vforce 3's in my zr. They work very well. I have never had Boyesen's, but have heard alot of people say they get brittle and crumble. I would imagine that could happen to any of them, and don't know first hand, that is just what I have heard.

See thats what im saying. Well do the reed petals make the difference or the cage assembly as a whole. I would get the whole assembly if I where to get them but I might as well ask out of curiosity.
