    Does anyone have one of these or know anything about them? Such as do they tune up as well as a normal 29? I have been seeing them pop up in ts as of late and I really like the looks of it. Just trying to figure out if I should buy it and send it on off to randy to get the super peak done.

    I just got mine in from the tech I normally use. He says they tune up great and the audio quality did not suffer. I got mine installed in the rig saturday, we start truckin again tomorrow so we'll see how everything goes! I have it running to dual 4' skipshooters with a ranger SRA198 mic. I hope it sounds as BA as it looks in that truck!!

    Same as the regular 29. Only difference is looks.

    I don't know anything about this shop...but they have a good review+Vid, with the scopes and all....hooked up to it....it has a U-TUBE vid of the radio getting a quick peak and tune...they also have a High power, customized, modded one too.
    Sounds like it is as good as a regular 29....tunes up the same...
    One noted weakness was weak weather reception.
    This review is more technical (and more in-depth) than the basic overview of sites like CB-review.
     
    Jolsen Thanks this.

    IT did great today.....performed like a trusty ol' Cobra 29, with a ###### facelift. i like how you can adjust the face brightness with the knob, and then program it to have a day and night setting. havent messed with memory channels yet, but i will soon.

    We all should know that is a hack shop but the video is good at showing off the features of the cb that I was asking about. I just ordered mine from sparky's cb shop. So I will review it when I get it.
