I would just like to put in my personal .02 with regards to Escort products. I have noticed that SOME, and I mean SOME, not all people on this site seem to like to bash Escort products. Now, I am not on here trying to say that Escorts are better than V1s or vice versa. I am simply stating that they BOTH make d*** good products IMHO (based on what I've seen in videos regarding the V1) In fact, my next detector probably will be a V1. Anyway, I've noticed some folks on here stating that Escort's are bad with regards to picking up quick RF HOLD operation by law enforcment officers. I respectfully beg to differ on that opionion. In fact, just today, my lowly 8500x50 picked up instant on from a Colorado State Trooper running Ka band several times. I started picking him up (shooting instant on Ka) as I was entering the interstate AND HE WAS TOTALLY OUT OF MY FIELD OF VISION AND WAS AROUND A SLIGHT CURVE IN THE INTERSTATE SHOOTING SOUTHBOUND I-25 traffic. So, to summarize, I'm simply stating that I feel that Escort should be given just a tad more credit for their products that's all. Oh, and one more thing. With regards to the Redline, MOST new products are going to have bugs when first introduced to include automobiles. Just some food for thought folks.
