Hey guys. I've been on the forum before, but have been busy for a while. I recently purchased a new car and transfered over my STI-R radar detector and 4 Blinder laser jammers from the old one.
Although i think i have enough protection, i've been wanting to get my hands on a laser gun to do my own tests and have fun with for a while.
I inquired about renting one on this forum, but it was something like $250 for a week, which just seemed... not worth it.
So i decided i was going to buy one. I've been searching ebay and the only laser guns that seem to be available are the Kustom Pro Laser I and II. I know there are better ones currently in use that are harder to jam, but i'm not spending $2000 for one... I'm setting my cap at $800.
There have been a few Pro Laser II's selling for ~$800 used. I've been saving up for a while and planned on buying one this week. But today, i noticed there was a Pro Laser I on ebay with a starting bid of $600 ending tonight. The auction stated it had just been serviced and that it worked perfectly, and the actual pictures showed the condition to be almost mint. I could also return it if DOA.
In the 15 mins to 'end of auction' i had left, i did a quick research to find the differences between the Pro Laser I and Pro Laser II.
I found a 3pg thread on this site where people were stating that the only difference between the two units involves the use of two lenses on the II vs the single lens for sending and receiving on the I. Members that have used both units stated the only difference in the field was the 'reaction' time, the II beating the I by a little. But nothing stating one was harder to jam than the other.
Having not heard any rock evidence that the Pro Laser I wouldn't work as well as the II, i placed a bid on the Pro Laser I. I put in a bid for $610 half thinking i would be out-bid and not win it, thinking i would spend another $200 for the Pro Laser II later this week- I was torn. Well of course, Murphy's law struck again and i won the thing, for $600 with $15 shipping.
Now i'm wondering if i should have just spotted the other $200 and went with the Pro Laser II for $800 vs this Pro Laser I for 600?
Is the II worth $200 more than the I?
I haven't payed for this Pro Laser I yet, i'm waiting to hear what you guys think before i do- i have 7 days to decide. Do you think i should accept the Pro Laser I or bite the bullet for the $ Pro Laser II?
