And rightly so!

As far as the Redline goes, I do NOT believe that it will false as much as the v1 does. Escort has the added advantage of tweaking their system against the v1, something that valentine couldn't do - yet. While the Redline will probably false more than their other detectors, I do not think it will be as bad as the v1, which is a step in the right direction for the Redline. The Redline is also stealth, something that valentine couldn't figure out how to do. I will not be buying a Redline simply because they don't offer a blue display, but if Escort has cranked up the selectivity as well as the sensitivity, then this will be the detector to beat. Time will tell, but presently I think Escort has the upper hand in these design wars.
