Things I liked: Everything! Easy to setup, easy to use. Easy to read the digital readout. I am real happy with this unit and wish I would have bought one years ago!
Things I would have changed: Nothing.
What others should know: The Alpha Master Chronograph is a well made, sturdy product. This is my first chronograph and it has worked flawlessly for me. I found the instructions easy to understand and it made it easy to setup the unit the very first time I used it. I really like how easy the unit folds up into a compact unit for storage and transportation. I have used the unit both outdoors and indoors. After ordering the indoor light unit for the chronograph I discovered I was able to "jury rig" my own method of lighting for indoor use. Although, I am very happy with the indoor lighting equipment for the unit. I created an Excel spreadsheet to record my readings for each shot, lowest velocity, high velocity, average velocity, extreme spread and standard deviation. I also record the pellet weight and then calculate the energy for the average velocity. I believe this information is very helpful in determining which pellet your air gun likes. I am extremely happy with this purchase.
Things I liked: The face/control box separates from the main unit allowing you easy access to the digital readout and controls.
Things I would have changed: I found it extremely difficult to get it to work consistently. I was able to obtain two good 16 shot strings and then numerous errors front or rear sensor. This was outside with and with out the diffusers. I am new to this and it maybe user error but I find the unit difficult to operate properly. I was told adding a light source under the diffusers will solve my problem. Hope so.
What others should know: I was told Competition Electronics makes the Pro Chrono Digital Cronograph and it has newer electronics and is much more user friendly
Things I liked: This unit is compact and great to use with the convenient portable display unit. Well built with a clear instruction booklet.
Things I would have changed: None
What others should know: The unit requires ample lighting to perform accurately. The included white translucent diffusers are well made and if not abused should last a long time. Being a retired engineer, this unit should be handled with the respect that any delicate instrument requires. It would also be a good idea to provide some type of protective device placed in front of the Chrony to prevent damage due to an errant pellet. I've used it quite a bit and have no complaints at all. For the price, it is a good product and is well made.
