    I keep seeing J.R. radio shop and galaxy dx959 Flamethrower tuned by skrewdriver radios on ebay but have never heard any reviews on them. Anybody have any experience with them? Seem overpriced to me but?

    LOL yea, sounds like a sucker sales gimmick for e-bay chumps. I would buy a radio tuned by DTB or Doug at Custom CB long before I would buy from e-bay like that.

    nothing but snake oil. just a over tuned radio.
    not worth the money. its just a swing mod.
    and charge you 3 times what the radio is worth.
    and bty they are refurbished radios. if you read the fine print

    Overpriced is an understatement. That must be the price they charge the US government.

    Like others I get bored and surf e bay and just kept seeing these radios and thought maybe I'm missing something. I wouldn't buy one I had a refurb 949 and never again. I put more into that radio than what I bought it for.:censored:

    You off all people don't need a radio called flamethrower........you already have pretty nasty burns from the boiling antifreeze incident. Sorry...I just had to say that.

    I figure the Flamethrower" is probably one step removed from a full blown Radiohactive radio.

    More than likely. People buy his radios just as they buy from Mike at Radiohactive.

    You just can't fix stupid. :D

    flamethrower radio

    Where are you guys getting your info?? The Flamethrower radio is NOT built by JR radio or screwdriver or (Skrewdriver) or sold by them. I own one, and it is built by sold Flamethrower only. I actually like the radio very much. Cost too much?? WTF? It is was between $25.-$ 37 LESS then what it would cost to have the local shop here after taxes and the ones I contaced on the internet to do the SAME MODS and upgrades listed on their add. The radio is a great way to go if you do not want to, or can't do the mods upgrades and Peak and Tweak alignment yourself.
    I get great signal reports with it too. Audio is loud and powerfull. If you look there are a boatload of reviews on the internet about the Flamethrower radio. Most of them are VERY good. I think you guys are a bit too quick on the badmouth trigger, at least try one before you knock it. I shot skip with mine all the time, and NEVER had a BAD signal report on the audio or signal strength, dont know who you been talking to, but my FlameThrower rocks!
