I have been a long time reader, but finally decided to join. I have been sporting a 8500 x50 for about a year and a half, and just upgraded to the Redline. Not totally sold on it yet, but I am still adjusting to the new tones.
It's also time to invest into some good laser jammers, and this is the place to ask questions. I got nailed last year on the Sawgrass Expressway by FHP using Laser Atlanta. The x50 tried it's best to alert me, but it was too late. I managed to scrub about 5 mph off from what he said he clocked me at (97 in a 65 ). Lack of paying attention owned me, especially on a road I wasn't new too. Went to pass a slow car, and ended up in triples.
