Improvements will be seen across the entire power band, but can be tuned to better low or high end power, but usually not both. It tends to be a trade-off unless you go all out with your mods.
Heres a link to the bike I'm referring too, its the third build.

Now with those mods to that bike what can I expect from a reed? Could you also post a video of before and after with the reed?
