Boysen reed Valves

Hi,

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.

Thanks.

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.
