    Angry R&D M16 Monster reeds

    Ive gotten my new VF-3 kit, ive installed it this weekend, so i had to take off my old M16, The M16 Ive bought used with new petals.
    And this is my warning for all that thinking about using this shit.

    Ive only 10hrs on this reeds and nearly all tips from the petals are broken.
    What kind of shit is this R&D stuff thats an constructive failure.

    If you did a search on the M16 you will not find any good rating about it.

    Just a warning for newbies

    i have read the same thing time and time again which is why vf2'[s and vf3's are what all the fast ski's seem to be running in 2 stroke land....

    That is the main reason why I developed the VF3 conversion. My M-16's reeds cracked after 8 hours and about 30 stripped bolts when disasembling them.

    Stick to the VF3's

    The M16 reeds work better with a spacer to get the reeds out of the boost ports. The VFIII's don't have that problem.
