Has anybody got anything positive to say about the Visiball radar reflector?

Regards,

Tony

Personally, I'd say don't bother. I installed one on my last Tornado, an 8.5 which had a really tall A frame. I did a little training in conjunction with the local RNLI ALB, and it could never see me on radar, no matter what the weather!

I then fitted an Echomax MIDI (hanging down from the A frame!) and my boat was visible on radar.

So if you really want a visiball, I've got one lying in the loft that you can have for nothing!!!

Thanks for the offer JIY. Just looking to see if my research about the visiball was correct. It was!
