"It costs more than the Davis Echomaster, but out performs it. If you're in the market for a passive radar reflector, we recommend the Tri-Lens."

Better doesn't mean effective....sorry.

Practical sailor did not take into account HOW shipping uses radar only how they performed relative to each other.
