Greetings from the great rocky mountains - great to be here! After getting nailed by laser and getting 2 tickets in as many weeks, I figured it's time to invest in some countermeasures. Ordered a LI Dual + V1.
V1 will go up immediately, LI should be mounted up in the next couple of weeks (pics will be posted - don't worry).
Previously I had a Bel Express 795 which, for the price ($35 at Circuit City), was an amazing detector. Very reasonable detection distances, saved me from more tickets than I can shake a stick at. After many years of faithful service, however, it was eventually retired when it's oscillator had destabilized enough that it's detection ranges were nearly useless. I went for 1.5 years without a detector and (luckily) without a ticket until BAM! Two tickets in two weeks...
So here I am. From all the lurking I did before I bought (I was going back and forth on a V1 vs a Redline), I have to say this is a great place and the body of knowledge that has accumulated on these forums is vast.
