Reed 12" vs Ikeda 407 tonearm

I m interested in using a 12" tonearm arm on a separate tonearm platform for my garrard 301. Was looking at Thomas schick 12" tonearm until I come across Reed with favourable feedbacks from audiogon and audioasylum with it trouncing the highly respected Triplanar in Mikel set up. However looking at the price of Reed tonearm I realized it is similarly price as ikeda 407 . Therefore should I go for a proven tonearm but discontinued or a new tonearm but widely adopted yet? . Your input is much appreciated. Happy listening

Consider the user on Audiogon is a shill for the Reed importer.

Do some research on their history together.

Good luck.
