I just bought a Redline so that my wife could keep the STI Magnum. My detection range with the STI Magnum was pretty poor. I have heard it all as to why but was left dissapointed even after I complained to Beltronics about it and sent it in for service. They upgraded the software, changed the sensitivity, etc, etc.
When I got it back, it was slightly better but even in a straight line with no interruptions I could generally see the LEO before the detector went off which is not right. This happened too many times to assert that the LEOs here always use instant on etc. Lots of times the cops leave their radars on when they drive around so it can't be that.
I have a slightly heavier foot than my wife but in general I really don't speed that much.
Just wondering if I might get more detection range out of the redline because most of the Youtube videos show it as a tossup.
