every boat have a radar reflector? You bet! Anyone who
sails a boat on open water or waterways that have a lot
of commercial traffic should have a radar reflector. The
decision as to which one is best can open a lot of discussion.
A number of leading boating magazines have published test
results and it's interesting to note that even they can't
agree on which is the best or does the best job.
I could go on
and on about all the advantages the Mobri Radar Reflector
has over all the other units on the market ... like its
unique size (22-1/2") and recommended mounting position,
its light weight (13 oz.), and low cost. But its biggest
advantage is that it WORKS BETTER!!
At 18' off the
water with a cross-section (a widely used method for measuring
radar reflectors) of 2m2, this translates to a range of
up to 18 nautical miles.
Since its introduction
in Europe in 1980, the Mobri Radar Reflector outsells
all other radar reflectors combined by a ratio of 4 to
1. Since introduced to the US market in '93, the Mobri
S-2 has become the standard by which all others are measured.
a few years ago the US Coast Guard completed an 18-month
long study of radar reflectors. Their goal was to find
the best reflector for use in the new recycled plastic
channel they are going to in a US waterways. The Mobri
S-2 was chosen hands down over all others and is in service
today marking all out channels!
The Mobri S-2 sells
for $60 each or a pair for $110.00
