They're a very respected old name in the way of camshafts. And they have the same rep when it comes to carbs.
Back in the 70's they even did cylinder head work for NASCAR teams. I have an old article on a 351C head they worked on.

A little known tidbit, Reed cams is located in Georgia, "The Man" died a few years ago when his ultralight aircraft crashed in front of his home.
