Around the Curve
Lets face it a majority of us radar users don't really see to many straight-away roads throughout our travels. Sure you might get the frequent highway or "route 6" that is predominately straight with slight bends and curves ( for me in NY this would be the taconic state parkway).
But no matter where we live we all have those infamous windy roads. We all know - at least in my town, that LEOS love to take these scenic curved roads and use them towards their advantage, hiding in discreet side roads or turnaround sections. Although this might not be a concern for the Midwestern states (mostly flat and straight sorry to generalize) for me living in rural NY, I find my self doing the infamous double glance down at the speedometer.
Sure you can post here and state the GOL radar tests but to me that is not significant. I feel that you can only see how well a radar detector works through personal experience and time.
So whether you hang a right and go down jolly avenue or you take that sharp left and traverse down break neck mountain pass, just remember hiding in the next gravel turn off or hidden driveway the leo stalks in prey . So please do not take staged tests so seriously, jeesh!
I guess this turned more into a reflection on my past driving experiences, a story and a question molded into one. Never the less I hope it was somewhat entertaining ^_^? That being said, in your own personal experiences what is the best "around the curve" real time radar detector. From my own experiences I would say sure my x50 is adequate, but maybe not up to par with the big boys.
Without a doubt this has question has been posed before. But I am looking for the nitty gritty, not a verbatim lecture from someone that can go to Google and type in radar results. Hopefully by adding a story, background information on my self and creativity this question can finally be put to rest.
HOPE ALL IS WELL!
