    VF-3s you get 100+ rpms on top and excellent low to mid range punch. The way to go IMO

    VF-3s are great reeds! If you're asking about the difference, I think you will find they will hold up better in the long run. ie, you wont have to replace them as often.

    IMO!

    Someone jump in and correct me if I'm wrong!

    with 7280 - you could prop "up" one notch to bring your rpms back down to 7150 in the power band and you probably have another mile per hour hidden in there.

    you don't even have to upgrade to the 05 to get the mile. You can have your concord prop bent a tad bit taller if you wanted to.

    Or you could upgrade to the 05 pump and Carl can help you with that dynafly pitch (dependent on your current modifications). It would be close to a 14/20 either way on the DF.
