Since I was mentioning my CT-12 units I decided to see if they've released anything new. Turns out they have! Their prices are usually quite good, perhaps I'll shoot them an email. The new products are:

-X2 Laser LED wired LED jammer
-CS-56 II wired and wireless diode, looks like heads received quite a redesign
-CT-12 motorcycle as it sounds a CT-12 for the motorcycle

Interesting. What guns do they claim to be able to jam? Are they all LED based or do they have some laser products?

They claim to jam basically everything.

The wireless LED version was tested and did fairly decent on all except one gun it was tested against, which I think was the Stalker. I have an updated limited edition version of that unit that was updated to jam newer guns from last year before they started changing control boxes, but I never formally tested it. I believe the CS-56 in the initial version had troubles with the Truspeed S. Newer models would have to be tested, it's been 2 years since, and I don't think anyone tested a hardware CT-12 as of yet. I think the newer ones can be updated.

CT-12 jammers are LED as is this new X2 model

CS-56 are Laser Diode, the CS-56 II says it has 75 watt laser diodes in the specs, the original doesn't specify

I should note these are insanely cheap to purchase relatively speaking. I think I paid $119 for my hard wired CT-12 and $79 for the wireless one (that was when they were clearing out old style control boxes). Diode ones are in the $250 range if I recall.

I emailed him for prices on the new models. I'll let you know on the wireless one if he sends me a price. They are usually really cheap. The wireless transmitter box is really a lot smaller than it looks like in pictures.

I was a little leery on the construction quality but my original CT-12, from 2011, hasn't leaked and still works. 3 1/2 years, $110. If it is indicative of how long they last and the current products perform fine you'd be just as well off getting a new one every few years.

To me these are great alternatives if you have a lot of cars and have some you seldom drive into laser trap areas.

Great for temporary cars or rentals. Got a link to purchase. Some good 3M double sided Velcro and the wireless and you're good to go on a temp basis. I use a LOT of rental cars and this would be perfect temporary unit. A save us a save.

Got a link for purchase ?

Just email them, he will send you a price. Once you pay it takes about 10 days for it to arrive.

Thanks will do. You've got me intrigued with this and i am wondering how it will do against my TSs?

A 75 watt diode unit? Hmmmm? Close to brute force there!

Someone should see how these stack up against the anti-jam Stalker XLR, the DALA, and the Compact. Something tells me it'll be IPT but maybe it'll be a pleasant surprise.

From past experience they usually jam what seems unlikely and fail where you think they'd succeed. They were working on software last year when I got that limited edition CT-12 wireless, which is just new software and old control box. If they get things ironed out these should be really decent jammers, because when they work they work well. They could be a very good budget choice. I'll give them benefit of the doubt because they're trying, the designs are just hack job clones of Blinders or LI. They've been around for a while, so they're not fly by night.

this sounds really cool, i would be really interested in seeing some testing done on these, perhaps a forum member can request a set to test on. You get a whole jamming setup literally for the price of one top shelf jamming head. On the other hand the vpr guns will probably rip right through it for IPT as others have said.

The C-12 wireless is only $120 and the C-56 II only $200. Dirt cheap! The wired versions are $20 less than the wireless. I have to give these a shot.

Well I finally got in touch with them. I ordered a cs-56II wired version from them and got it here in 3 days. I'll do some testing on them and report back if anyone is interested. Also I asked if the v2 had 75w heads and the answer was yes. So we'll see how it goes.

Well I just did a quick test with my li tester and it seems to alert to all the guns listed on the tester. I pointed the heads at the wall in my garage and it had enough power to set off my li installed on my car. I also did a quick check of the heads using night vision. The beam seems pretty bright compared to my li 8.9 heads. The beam pattern seemed to be vertical with the head horizontal, this was at maybe 8 inches away from the wall.

can you take some pics? Im sure there are members near you willing to paint your setup with a lidar unit, then you get can a better idea of its programming quality. check the seals etc and make sure they will uphold to weather.
