    Uhhh, I wouldn't do any of them. If money is an issue (isn't it an issue for everyone?) I'd do eBay for an older BEL 980 or a similar BEL....

    My first choice would be the pro 73 then the Pni silver bullet last the cobra my father in law has a cobra detector and I must say it don't give you any real advance warning by the time it goes off your lucky if you have a few seconds to slow down.

    Silver Bullets have very poor detection IIRC. I say go for the 980.

    Pro 73 has full text display while Pro 58 only has a numerical signal strength indicator via a 7 segment icon display.
    Pro 73 has real voice alerts.
    Pro 73 has an option select mode with features like selectable bands.
    Pro 73 costs $50 more bucks.
    The performance is virtually identical.
