    Shows how much I know. I thought the Ci system could work with them, too.

    Yeah I am told you must have either a 360c or a Redline Ex to run the ZW5. They also say soon they will have ZW5 support for the MaxII's.
    They really need to address auto JTK and the ability to run 4 heads. Other than that it has JTG all the guns we ran against it and of course now 2 guns in the real world.
    A "nice thing" would be to announce the gun your getting shot with.

    Thanks for that Sarge. Always great to see how it performs to your standards. Very reassuring.

    You bet.
    It is a nice setup. 360c is the best BSM filter I have had to date. Of any manufacturer. I really am starting to like the WiFi update feature. ZW5 is performing well and now has saved my big ass twice in the real world and test well against all the guns found in Texas. 360c has great range. It is quiet. So I give it 4 our of 5 stars. Give me autoJTK and 4 head capability and your got 5 stars from me.

    Sarge, 5 stars overall? Including price point? The 360c costs almost as much as a 2head Tmg system lol...

    @sarge, glad to hear your reports. You carry a long reputation on RDF dealing with testing and frank talk. Some of that frank talk has been hard core at ER (deserved). I have the same view/experience regarding Max, Max360/ZW5. The RL EX just sucks regarding BSM chaos, ditto for MRxx false alerts from BSM. I bought the combo EX with ZW5 some time ago. Saved $300. I now use ZW with the Max360. Just received a 360c. Look forward to get to know this device.

    I hope next time I write a post satisfied with some of ER products, others won’t pounce on me as some employee spy. Get tired of that.

    I have a question, Sarge. You are listed as MFG/Vendor. I assume dealing with TMG? You are writing good experiences with some ER products. I bring this up, as I experience this as a double dose of genuine fair/neutral/truthful reports (ER in this case).. Especially if you are working with competitive product. Thank you....

    Well the TMG is a group effort here on the forum. Not just a manufacturer and I am retired and had the time to sorta be the conduit between TMG and the users.......so some cried about that and they slapped a vendor tag on me. I dont care :)
    I am just a hobbyist like you and others here and try and call 'em like I see 'em. Yes I try many different brands and models. As for Escort....hey....they seem to be trying to change and focus on delivering a great product....hell I want to support them doing that. TMG/Escort will continue to get better and better. Folks want to throw shade on a product that isnt the one they bought....OK...I find it childish and silly but ....OK.

    Well 360c is $650 and ZW5 is $850...so $1500 bucks.

    Code ZW5300, saves $300 bucks on combo 360c and ZW5. Just hit ER web site. It is still there when checking out. FYI... saved me $300 Washingtons.

    Edited above. Looks like they pulled the combo for the EX and 360.
