    reeds v force????

    Noticed after close inspection that previous owner put v force reeds in ski .Only used 3 holers/ found 2 holers in with parts. so I assume he just ordered replacements and not cages. My ? is now with 1 reed wore do I replace the rest with v force means I'll have to order 2 sets $42 each to get enough 3 holers to cover all cages. Will this harm ski/ performance not running 2 holers as slit is shorter on them. Thanks, Nate

    See link it shows 1 set of reeds with 2 holes for there valves. The reeds I have in ski now are like the 3 hole 1's if I buy 2 more sets I would have enough to do all stock valves with v- force.... but I was talking with a friend and he says that your bottom reeds are stiffer is this true? does anyone have a pict. of "stock" reeds.

    stock reeds use two sets of peddles per cage. The VF's use four sets per cage.

    I see now after taking a closer look at the v-force cages........ Its still cheaper for me to order 2 sets of the v- force reed peddles and not use the 2 holers(mounting holes) then it is to order a complete set of boyst. reed peddles. guess I'll just have 6 2 holers as xtra parts.

    See the pics? See the light at the edges through the cage? That's not gunna work well. Unless you don't mind running with leaky reeds?
