I would be as conservative as possible on a reserve. You need one when things don't go right. Typically you're going to deploy a reserve at a much lower altitude than your main. This means you may not make it back to the landing area; you are probably going to be landing out.
As others have said they don't handle high loading well. That, and landing out are factors that would make me not recommend this to you.
