After riding; Chopped and rockered blasters, MX1 and a Viper, I preferred the ride of the Reaper. Came across a decent deal on a hull and this is my review.
First time doing flat water on a Reaper.
62t/61x 754cc CPT ported 170psi
SJ bpipe w/ RN waterbox
Dual 38's /Ocean pro flame arrestors / Boyesen 2 stage reeds
Zeeltronics / WaxCurve
144 Solas Mag / x-metal trim / 10-16 hooker
Pros: You can throw it around like an a/m stand up and being a fix steer you don't get tired as quickly. Compared to the blaster it is much easier to slide out and recover after tricks or spins and keep going. Side mounting is much easier and quicker compared to the blaster. As I get more time on it flat water I will post more. I will try and get some video too.
Cons: Squeezing the seat with your thighs gets painful pretty quickly. (Reason why everyone runs pool noodles on the seats)
A lot of drag so top speed is not great. I would guess I am probably topping out in the mid/low 40's. With the same setup in my blaster I was hitting high 40s/low 50's. Pain in the arse to build.
