I don't intend to clutter the form with another 3p vs 4 thread.. But, after all my research on this form I still cannot get an accurate assessment of performance where specifically range is concerned.. Several OP's have said the range 4 is quite a disappointment compared to 3p, others claim the opposite... This shouldn't necessarily be a matter of opinion.. It should be an easily obtainable fact, yet my research has proven to be otherwise (ive been out of the loop since I got rid of my 3p and I am looking to get another) range being my most important feature to me) Is it the majority opinion that the 3p does in fact have a slightly better distance / range than the 4 ? Best Regards.
