My first radar detector ever was the 10 Band Cobra ESD-9115 a few years ago. Which sold for over $100 that I got for free. I soon found why everyone calls Cobras "Crapras.".....
Ever since then I have never used a Cobra but my question is are they still really that bad?
I rode in a friends car the other day who had a Crapara RD and no it is not the recent XRS version ones. It was a small one probably only an 11 band RD. There was a LEO coming from the opposite direction on KA band (Constant-on) and im sure he was doing atleast 10-15 over the PSL but it seemed he had enough time to slow down before the LEO passed us.
So I want to know have they gotten better? If they have.
Then what is the best Cobra radar detector on the market today? The current ones are all XRS so im sure it is atleast an XRS version. Prehaps the XRS-9930?
And how does the Best Cobra radar detector stand against the other detectors within that price range and detection.
