I think that although the active systems are very clever and have there place they are not much use as the only reflector on a rib.
The main issues are that they rely on electricity so will be unreliable
they paint such a large area that they ‘hide’ all other boats in the area and they are not failsafe
A catch rain type reflector at about £30 is good value for money and works Well and the money you save you can spend on Fuel (or beer)
