    Carbon Tech Reeds...

    Anyone have anything to say about them? I have the opportunity to buy a brand new set with stuffers for $150 shipped. I would like to try VF3s, but with racing stock class I need to run stock cages, although the reeds can be aftermarket. Any opinions? anyone running them?

    As Always, thanks guys....

    I use the boyeson dual stage pro series reeds and love them. They also fit on the stock cages and have both a fiberglass and a carbon reed that fit on top of one another..

    I had the carbon tech reeds... I had 25 or so hours on mine,,,(stock set-up with protec stuffers) and they where shot.

    I went with VF-3's and a massive hole shot differance.. I love the Nando set-up he sold me.. as a fact with the carbon-tech reeds I used stock jetting.. ran good all summer... I used the VF-3's,,, I almost burned it up i ran so lean. I went from 117 to 131 high jets!

    Performance Improvement?

    Hello Rossnemo,

    When you changed reeds, did you see much improvement in performance? Rough guess on RPMS, etc. Also, do I understand that you simply replaced stock with these? Did you add the stuffers as well?

    I'm wondering about these as a lower price alternative to the VF-3s.

    Thanks in advance!

    I cant be sure as i did the head, keyway and reeds all together. Seems i thrive on trying something different when i can and i am happy with their performance. Sometime i may try swapping the vf3s in my 1390 05 with my boyeson in my 1300 06 and see if i can tell a difference..
    Yes these bolt on the stock cages, have a lower fiberglass reed that is overlapped with a carbon fiber reed. I liked the design. It all fit very well and yes i used their stuffers also. I think their kit with stuffers is around 325.00
