There’s no dilemma. Reed will nearly always make more power, over a wider band with more overrev because the inlet timing isn’t as compromised. Whatever the instructor’s experiences were I’m guessing there were other factors at play aside from induction type.

If PP made more power, guys wouldn’t be adding reeds to “stock appearing” PP motors ;)
