What size REEDS?

.♠.MSG .♠. /

Just picked up Molassi carbon reeds for my a35 70cc engine and it came with two different thicknesses for the reeds. Which one should I use and why?

Re: What size REEDS?

Thinner reeds work best at low rpms, while thicker reeds are more resistant to fluttering at high rpms. Carbon reeds also have higher spring tension which makes them more resistant to fluttering. I'd personally go with the thinner ones, since you probably wont be running enough rpm to worry about fluttering and the added low end cant hurt.

the consensus is that you want a frequency double that of the rpm you want them to be most effective at.

I think that is the other way around regarding reed thickness
