Hi Folks,

So it's been mentioned in a few posts but it's time to make it more official. A few of us are planning a testing event in South East Florida, somewhere between Port St Lucie and West Palm Beach, the exact date and location is TBD, but we are thinking to do it between Christmas and New Years and I have a few sites scoped out that should be good. @drtoddw will be in town and would be providing our testing equipment. He has Lidar guns including the Prolite, Ultralyte Compact, Truspeed S, DETC, and DESL. One of the dragons is an older firmware, the other is new. He also has some Radar guns as well, so perhaps we might do a little radar max range testing on a nice 12 mile flat straightaway if time and interest permits.

I would LOVE to have a Stalker XLR/XS/RLR to test with as well as it's a super common gun and seen a lot in this part of the state, if anyone has one they would be willing to loan or rent to us please let me know. We will have ALP, TMG and maybe even Blinder HP905 in the mix so it should be an interesting event to see how they all do against the guns on hand.

Plan would be to meet up before hand someplace near the testing site (grab coffee etc) to go over test conduct, fill out the testing sheets I have made up with vehicle and setup info and ensure that everyone has their systems setup for testing. This will level set everybody on how the testing is conducted and give us all a chance to meet each other. We will head over to the chosen test site and perform the test. Ideally one person who is not actively testing can sit with the shooter and write down any punch through distances that occur on the testing sheets as we go so we have good records at the end of the test as to how folks did. At the end we can provide result sheets and evaluate any setups that failed to perform well and perhaps tweak them. After testing if folks want to hang or grab food we can do that too :)

If you are interested please let us know, and we will get the dates and locations out when plans have finalized. If there are any days in that week that you can't work with let us know, we will do our best to try to find a date that most can make. It's around the holidays so hopefully some folks are off work, but at the same time folks may have plans with family too, we will do our best.

Feel free to tag any others that are down this area or might be interested.

I'm interested! Ideally, the weekend would work best for me, but a M,W, or F would be possible given enough notice.

I'm off the week of Christmas so this would definitely be of interest to me. I'm finally getting my TMG three head setup installed this Saturday so this i perfect timing. Thanks to @thebravo for organizing something. I'm a located in St. Pete so this will be a bit of a drive, but based on the guns would definitely be worth it.

I'll let everyone know when my plans are a little more certain. I will be down in the area from the 24th through the following weekend (and perhaps into the first part of the following week).

I will also update within this thread as my schedule becomes clearer.

Yea I know it's a drive but it's fun and we can make a day of it between laser and radar stuff and grabbing some food/drinks :)

I'll be in the Jensen Beach area on the 24th. Used to live off the Green River Parkway near Walton Road in PSL. Going back to NY on the 26th. Tight notice, I know, but I'd love to test my TMG a-15 quad setup.

Thanks,

Phil

I'm sure we can do a little mini test, I think the main group is probably going to be the 29th, but I'm off the entire week so if you want to connect of a day while you are nearby I can certainly help you test. Since it's just a single car it won't take more than an hour to knock it out.

Thank you, thank you, thank you @thebravo . All I had to test with was a 20/20. It helped to get some levels worked out. But I wonder how it does against the others...especially the dreaded DE.

I'l PM you when I get there and see what my family wants to do. I will be in Orlando 2 days from now. I'm sure I will have lots of free time. We still have family in PSL and Ft. Laud.

Thanks! :)

Phil

Just wanted to let folks know, we do indeed have a Stalker XLR incoming for this testing, it will be here this week. so we will have: Prolite, Ultralyte Compact, TSS, Stalker XLR, DESL, DETC for Lidar guns. That should be a really good array to test against. Add in a mix of ALP, TMG, Blinder on both large and small vehicles front and rear setups too, should be a really good time and should generate some good data for the community. We will post the final date/time soon, I suspect it will be Sat the 29th. I will be driving test courses over the weekend to confirm the best location to do the testing.

If it happens to move from the 29th, please let me know, I would drive an hour south from Melbourne area to test out my 3/2 TMG on a Genesis Coupe, but the 29th is the one day I can't. :(

We actually used village parkway just south of there last year, we had a good spot... They built a development there this year so it's less good than last year. I have a few spots to visit and see if we can find a spot that's low traffic and works well for testing. I will drive by that spot and see though.

I have at least one other guy that can't do the 29th, so if needed I can personally meet up another day and do a little mini test with a couple folks. Possibly the 24th or 26th. I will have a prolite and XLR on hand for sure, I will see if I can also borrow a DE and TSS for that day too if @drtoddw is not available for the mini test. Let me know when you could do it and we can arrange it. I'm off all week, just can't do the 27th.

We can probably work something out. Since you are literally minutes away, worse case scenario I drop off the guns to you. I also may have other days available as well; the 29th was just a day that seemed most likely. Thanks for being the "point man" on this.
