Boysen reed Valves


Has any 2stroke owners out there fitted Boysen power reeds? I presume that some of the Zapcat boys fit em on the Twatsooo 50hps.

My 70hp Twatsooo with a 17p prop pushes my 4.85m rib along at 41 mph (GPS) at 5800rpm.
Are Boysen reeds better for hole-shot or top speed or neither?

Does anybody know what kind of performance improvement , if any these type of reed valves would have on my setup.


life's full of ups "n" downs.

they won't make any notable dif' for you,steel reeds tend float and or bounce
at about 6000+ rpms, reeds alone will not do much if any thing for your hull.
at 5800 ya don't need them at 8800 best have them.
