Agreed - but one should be careful and not get overly optimistic.
One must remember to use caution, particularly if they already know that their rear-side is vulnerable.
And even if one's tested system is rear "true-JFG," the possibility of an unexpected PT still remains. I think we all need to be very realistic about the dangers of this particular type of encounter, as well as how hard it is to protect against it.
The Pro Laser III at far distances is capable of getting punch-throughs on my car at the 800 foot plus mark. If I switch to the Ultralyte I can't even get my car after 250 feet down the center. The beam divergence I guess plays a big part.
Technically if you have two blinder heads spread out 12 inches apart on the rear, its suppose to jam better the further out you go. What I have found is the back of cars have so much to cover, that the heads cannot always reach every inch on the back. I tested the Truspeed against my rears. If you go down the center it will jam up to 1000 feet. The minute you move the Truspeed over to my tail lights, its instant punch-through. The Blinders can't even see the beam because its so tight and such a low powered gun. |
I believe that putting 4 heads on the rear of a car with any jammer whether its Diode or LED, should give you JFG performance. This is only if the setup is spaced out perfectly so that every inch of the rear is accounted for.
It's very, very, very hard to protect the rear of any vehicle.....and given that many rear installations are severely installed by the physical shape of the trunklid and garnishes there - which may not optimally match the weak-points of the vehicle in terms of LIDAR reflectivity, it just makes the problem that much worse.
