    Default Help me choose!!!

    I'm desperately trying to decide which detector to buy. I have it narrowed down to the X50, V995 and RX65. I'm heading to college in Miami this fall and will be driving b/t Miami Tampa and Colombus, GA (through Ft. Benning every time). I'm planning on putting Veil on soon but I just can't decide which detector to get. Any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    i'd pick either the rx65 or the x50. the only reason at the moment that i'd take the rx65 over the x50 is that Roy has a special goin on it for the time being. both are exceptional rd's

    All 3 are good. If you are on a tight college student budget then get the 995 it's the least expensive on Roy's site.

    I like my v995 it's good compared to my old rx65(now my dad's) just make sure you mount it low to easily pick up the laser, since you don't have a jammer it will easily detect laser the lower it is. And i hope you have a black car with flip down headlights and your state doesn't require a front plate.

    Florida troopers use alot of laser from what I understand. If you don't have the money to get a jammer be sure to pick up a can of veil. If you don't have the money for Veil get a $20.00 laser shield. It's worth it!

    X50 is better at photo radar detection than the RX65 and V1, but apparently has worse X band detection than either, so it depends on what is used in your area.
