I'm on my 2nd Ninja now and I love it but the price of the Reedy engine has me on the fence. The Reedy engine is like $80 cheaper and right now $80 is a big deal to me.

IMO the ninja is a better engine overall. I know I love mine.

between these 2 - plus the Nova +4 is over rated only popular because drake ran it,

They all look like great engines. The truth is, unless you get a lemon, you'll probably be well beyond happy with a Nova +4, Ninja, Reedy, or any other high performance .21.
