i have been using RD for about 10yrs (i'm 28).. started cheap cobra just noise maker. than upg to my first solid one bel 940 was affordable and saved me during long hauls from college/home for breaks. after college was looking to get new one went with 8500x50 mainly due the the baised reviews i had read and it was cheaper than V1 but was very happy with the x50.
now 4yrs later.. i finally made the splurge for v1 have known about it for long time but was just to out of my price range.
only had for a week and loving those arrows. i do miss the expert meter on escort but arrows are way more helpful. it doesn't really false as much as i had expected it too compared to my x50. i get few extra Xs but thinking of just turning that off.
to anyone considering... go with V1. I have already become a spokesman for them and recommending to all friends.
