All depends on how nice of a laser jammer you have (ie: how much your willing to pay)

guys of lidar have some great real world tests at
http://www.guysoflidar.com/july-2008...mmer-test.html

as you can see the laser interceptor model jams the gun all the way to 0 ft on nearly all laser guns in use today. it also costs $750 just to protect the front. if you want to cover the rear (which it seems rear laser is being used more and more in some areas) that'll run you another $525.

They sounded great! Only problem, the left ear bud had a short in it when I opened the box. Sent them back two days ago.

it depends on the test and radar band as to what beats a V1. I had read many reviews that said the V1 picks up laser scatter more than any other model.

check out laser veil, just because the cops gets you with laser doesn't always mean he has your speed. My V1 has picked up laser while riding at over 2400 feet. the cop can't get my speed with laser until about 600 feet. Laser VEIL makes the 600 feet possible, it was about 1100 feet before i applied it

mix a good laser jammer with VEIL and you have a very tough to beat defense

Then again, if we are talking about bikes. You could use just a dual kit and put one of each of the receivers/transmitters on the front and rear of your bike. Full laser protection with about the best jammer money can buy for $750. That's about as much as two good tickets.

I'd like to get one but I need a new V1... lost mine somehow. and it's hard to spend $750 on a jammer when the V1 has saved me so many times. I don't encounter enough laser to justify the cost

Ya, its all about what works best for you. I drive 50 miles of Houston freeways daily, and man does HPD love their ProLaser3's. I will be looking to get one in the future.

ya but LEO's and their agencies are getting more and more wise of these jammers on a regular basis. laser jammers, while not specifically prohibited by any federal laws, have been prohibited by a handful of states in the us already, i suspect other will follow suit before too long.

one other thing that should be mentioned in this thread (at least for vehicles other than bikes) is take that front plate off your vehicle. license plate = numero uno spot for laser, they are nice and shiny and reflect infrared light VERY well.

yep, but there are other ways of fixing that problem and leaving the plate on... but I won't post it here

and It's not a laser jammer... it's a parking assist or laser cruise control

i've seen guys veil plates, but that is technically illegal, also seen the supposed laser refracting shield, but those are also technically illegal, but then again so is not having a plate, but its all good.

and you say that, but many of the jammers out now have parking assist mode, that actually works, just in case the LEO wants you to prove it.

I have a passport 8500 x50 and got popped on 290 going through Hempstead by a laser. The thing didn't even beep once. 82 in a 65. Guess my traffic lawyer is getting more business. LOL.
