In general, the things I like about the InRad vs most OEM filters are:

Since it's after the front end, an IF filter can't make the front end quieter. However, a narrower and/or sharper bandpass results in lower noise power delivered to the detector. On some signals, I can hear them much better when switching to a narrower filter. A narrower/sharper filter also lets less QRM through to act on the receiver's AGC. To a point, it's silly to use an IF filter that's wider than the signal you're trying to hear (very narrow filters tend to ring-g-g-g).

Price: $ 170.00
the price is high
Filter 1800 Hz
Why do not you to ts-850S
You don't get top performance for the least cost. When I can afford it, my TS850 will be changing to the superior InRad filters. Then, my Kenwood filters will be for sale to... eh... hams who consider cost the most important (or only) factor.
