    Boyseen or Carbon tech?

    I'm rebuilding the top end and carbs of my 780. I've decided that I want some aftermarket reeds.

    I'm looking at Boyesen and CT's. Is there any noticable difference between the two? If so what?

    Will I need to go bigger jets than stock if this is the only mod?

    Carbon techs are a good choice!

    Thanks for the input ZMANN. But let me ask you this...Why are they a good choice? I assume you use them, do you have any experience with Boyesen for comparison? I'm not trying to be a smart ass, just trying to figure which way to go and why.

    Follow up question.

    Boyesen has both "Power' and "Pro" series reeds. What's the difference? and are either of these the same as the dual stage reeds I've read about?

    It's about the money! the carbon techs for a stock motor are about 140.00 Boyesen are great but I like the dual stage and the price goes up! or go balls to the wall and get the cages then you can choose from a few awesome choices like v force and Boyesen ! but is your motor modded?

    PS I used the carbon techs and loved them! then I found a deal on some Boyesen dual stage power valves and honest to god I noticed no difference! so on my Yami I went with carbon techs also you have the 780 spacers that help keep the reeds safe

    I think I'll keep my balls right where they are for now!

    I'm not going to say money isn't an issue but I keep switching back and forth for the forum to different sites and reeds, both Boyesen and CT's, are ranging between 90.00-125.00...so if they're in this range cost doesn't really matter. I haven't found anything specifically listed as "dual stage" yet though.

    EDIT You replied to your own post before I could

    All of the boyesen's are dual stage. There is one bottom petal with some holes in it, and an upper petal that covers them. check it out.http://www.boyesen.com/cwo.php?store...roduct_id=1208 difference between "power" and "pro" is that the pro uses a carbon fiber top petal. I run the boyesens. Why? they were cheap on ebay. They work well, bt nothing even comes remotely close to the V force reeds.
