Radar/Laser Detectors Recommendations Please

Taking the goat to Miami next week and then on up to Cleveland a week after that.

I've been resisting buying one of these trying to rely on my spidey sense to avoid the fuzz - two tickets this year and obviously not working.

Anyone got one they swear by? Suggestions are appreciated, thanks....

I have a Cobra XRS9400. It works wonders with the K and Ka bands, but its a hit and miss with the Laser, sometimes it works and sometimes I've already passed the cop (facing me head on shooting laser) then it goes off. For the 100 it cost me, it's save me in smaller cities and towns, but you will still need your "spidey sense" while using at all times.

I use the Escort 8500 X50 Radar/Laser Detector connected to a Escort Shifter ZR3 Laser Defense System,

The laser shifter has saved me several times.

Come on, keep a GTO under 80???? Thats like putting a triple fudge brownie in front of a fat kid and telling them not to eat it!!! It's not going to happen.

Good analogy, although I could not afford to drive her if I was to risk getting tickets, hell I can barely afford this awesome toy as it is but, its worth every penny to drive this beast, especially where I work the vehicles in the parking lot consists of high-end luxury sports cars BMW,Porsche and to think majority of them will get roasted by my 30k GTO

Sorry if this is dumb, but I don't get how the two work together. I'm not looking to drop 600 bucks into this venture.

Thats the one I am getting. Please note that it is a radar/laser jammer. They are illegal in almost every state. The thing is though that it will start going off the second that it detects laser or radar. Then it starts sending a signal back to jam the officers gun. That gives you enough time to get your speed down, and turn the jammer off. It works wonders. If you also read the review on there it is amazing. Its the only jammer to jam every gun every time. They will even pay your ticket if you get pulled over. Its not that expensive either.
