How does the pro 78 do on Ka Bands. How much better would a Bel sti be compared to it
Re: Pro 78
Pro-78's do aceptably on Ka band. Bel STI would do better, of course. Not exactly the same league for comparing though...

If a cop is pointing straight down the road toward me, I usually get about .75-1 mile detection (depends on hills and whatnot)(ka). When there is a curve (like 90 degree) ill get maybe .2-.5 mile detection (ka). I usually don't speed too much unless I'm bored (10 over on a normal day). This is more than enough time to slow down. I also only get 1 false on my 40 minute commute(suburban).
Its not going to be as good as the STi on ka but look at the price.... about half.
Price was important for me. I drive a wrangler that uses sail cloth as 1/2 the car so it can take a short 10 seconds to steal it.
Overall it depends on what you can afford and how much you intend on speeding.
If you do go with the pro 78 however, you will not be disappointed.
Whistler just came out with a new software version on the 78, will be testing it in the coming weeks
