Ive got the original micron mx 's from the 1990's. Superb alarms and ive never had a problem with them at all.

I think the newer ones have a few issues, so ive heard and arnt as robust as the originals...............................i could be wrong ? unless anyone knows differently.

i have had a pair of micron m's for about 4 seasons now, and there have been ALOT of issues.............
BOTH-from the start the line gates didnt work properly (after several tests i discovered that the line gate would only release consistently if it was on a stiff arm instead of just wire).... after a few sessions i modified them with home made line clips attached to the gates and they now work alot better
BOTH-battery cover cracked on both due to weakness in the cover where the bankstick clips are attached
SINGLE ALARM-last season the part containing the line gate snapped off from the main head after dropping off the line (indicating a run) and hitting the bankstick... lots of superglue later and all is well again
BOTH-a few weeks ago i noticed that the insulation surrounding the wire at the speaker end had cracked sufficiently to be visible (probably due to the cold weather). both alarms now have several layers of duck tape over the insulation all the way from the speaker to the head.
so all in all i'm not too impressed with them..... although i have to add that they have NEVER failed to indicate a run despite all the issues. tbh if i had the cash i'd invest in a set of billys backbiters instead.
