Funny, that, I was just thinking the same!
I found the tests done in MBM back in July 2001...
Best was the Pains-Wessex Ocean Sentry (as used by RNLI I think) but at a price - £850
- but 100% effective
Second the Cyclops 3 - £379
Third the Firdel Blipper at £129
Then sort of equal fourth the Cyclops 2 at £299 and the 18" Octahedral at £13.35
The tube-prism type were pretty useless in their tests, and they didn't test the tin can. Pity, 'cos a tin can would have been a good "control" test...
