Default Redline ex on "backorder"

Howdy, surprised no one else has asked or commented on it. I'm sure if it is the case you can't answer anyway but. With the rumors of the ex 360, is the ex done and an ex 360 coming out, or some other type of replacement. Or some other reason for it being on "backorder", ex:just not making as many of them? Haven't been logging into the forums but been checking things pretty regularly lately. On the side, was cool you all did the interview and showing of the facility with vortex. Will be cool when he gets it all put together. Thanks, have a good one

It seems like a pretty solid unit with the recent updates. Little extra range to get it like the redline o usa version would be nice but sure it falses to bsms less than the o or the competitor. People seem to complain about the "way" it fales. Really, I prefer the harder signal hit. That way when I get hit and it's higher signal, it should be close. If I don't see any police, and have a pacifica or honda in front of me I'm pretty sure it's that. If I flip it to "auto" and it goes away I know that's what it is. Although, luckily I wasn't able to get in front of an oddysey the other day. Merged onto highway, car in front of me in right lane, honda in the left putzing along. Dark, k band hit, thinking for sure honda although it was a few years old didn't think they had it in that gen. If I could have got around him on the right I would have. Good thing I couldn't, shooting kband in the median in the dark. If I had room I would have put it down and passed him. More ka here, but still see the k too.

Absolutely it is a very solid unit. I use it daily, and it's one of my favorites.

We are certainly not finished producing RedLine EX. We will continue offering and supporting it for quite some time.

A parts shortage is to blame for RedLine EX being on backorder. We should have more available soon, hopefully within the next few weeks.

I spoke to customer support today to check on the status of my order and I was told the Redline EX is backordered until at least the end of August ( 3 weeks ).

I found that many authorized dealers have plenty of stock, is there a change coming, or a newer version of the EX?

I found it surprising that many dealers have stock and Escort does not.

Could it be the international version is still selling and not the US version?

I suspect that the next production run won't happen until the parts shortage is resolved.

IMO this thread has run it's course so I'm going to close it, any mod can reopen it if they wish to.
