All VForce4R should seal completely at the reed tip. However there will always be a sliver of light visible on the sides of a brand new assembly. This is unavoidable due to the design which incorporates a concave surface that preloads the reed tip. After use, this sliver of light typically disappears as the reeds break-in and become seated. This has absolutely zero impact on performance.
Should I be able to see any light at the reed tips or through the sides of my VForce4R reed valve system?
