Things I liked:

Small Form Factor, Lightweight, Doppler isn't light sensitive... App support with multiple profiles

Things I would have changed:

Make it work more than 3 times...? Robustness, better calibration/hardware flashing options.

What others should know:

Bought this instead of a normal stand chrono... Only 3 uses and it no longer reads. Tried everything from new batteries to Reinstalling the app. JUNK

    Things I liked:

    Easy setup, worked for every shot. Love the voice calling out the power. Such a convenient, small but powerful tool!

    Things I would have changed:

    Might add a way to attach it to the end of the barrel for those that want that. I used mine without attaching it.

    What others should know:

    Be sure you have selected the right choice whether rifle or pistol for calculating fps, etc. If you select the wrong one it won't read the fps at all. I believe this is why some have said it doesn't work all the time. Its easy to forget to change it. This has worked absolutely flawlessly for me. Fantastic tool!!

    Things I liked:

    The item is great

    Things I would have changed:

    Things I would change the little tiny screw on the back of the plate that holds the battery in two small the screw And paper direction should come with it for the price that were paying

    What others should know:

    It works great for a lot of money but it’s easy to take around without anything else

    Things I liked:

    It's compact, light and does not take up much space.

    Things I would have changed:

    It needs to be re designed so it reads consistently. Some shots, mainly the first and second shot do not get counted or no readout. The programming is to little to vague when trying to input caliber, bullet weight etc. I would think if company puts that much time into writing a program it would do a bang out job to help the shooter get as much data as possible. I am not impressed with this item because of the inconsistencies or what shot it counts. Thats why I purchased it to get accurate information.

    What others should know:

    If your purchasing this just to find out FPS it's an okay item. I have watched on YouTube other individuals have the same issues with this item. It's not just one person having this issue with this item. It is everyone who purchased it. Before you purchase this item educate yourself on this item to.see if its worth wasting your momey.

    Things I liked:

    Ease of use and pocket size.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would find away to incorporate a mounting system other then the end user and a rubber band.

    What others should know:

    No good without downloading the FX Chrono program so make sure you have a higher end phone. Also, test your chrono right out of the box, it seems like a lot of these don't work or work for a short period of time. Seen some youtube stuff that shows loose components on the inside, but I don't know about all that. I returned my first one and was sent a replacement that works flawlessly.

    Things I liked:

    Easy to use, once you figure it out.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing. I compared it to my Caldwell and with most shots it's within 1 or 2 FPS and often exactly the same.

    What others should know:

    Make sure it's pointed in the right direction, with the green light facing the shooter.

    Things I liked:

    This thing is VERY FUN to use. Its easy to set up and you can have multiple profiles with your shot strings

    Things I would have changed:

    Make it with a rechargeable system instead of batteries. Just because I always have a portable pocket charger. I dont always have extra batteries

    What others should know:

    Once in a while a shot wont be registered but its not so often that it bothers me. But something I feel people should know. For instance, I was shooting my Walther Reign (.25), I shot a 40 string and it missed 1. I shot the next 40 string and it didnt miss any

    What others should know:

    Doesnt come with any way to secure it to your barrel. You have to find your own "straps'

    Things I liked:

    Excellent quality. Works great. App you can see and hear your shots, fps, ft-lbs, save multiple shot strings, email them. Lots of functions, just have to learn the app

    Things I would have changed:

    App just takes time to learn all the functions. Otherwise is straightforward, never gave me any problems.

    What others should know:

    Buy it, 50$ more than a competition chono, BUT YOU CANT SHOOT IT!!!, (big plus for me) you don't need light, shoot whenever/ wherever you want. I shot in pitch black with my thermal scope, sighting in, got shot string on my air force same time.

    Not sure where to put the chrono for accurate reading.

    What others should know:

    I still know where to put the chrono..near the muzzle or 4 inch before the muzzle.??

    Things I liked:

    Nice, when it works.

    Things I would have changed:

    It works less than 20% of the time.

    What others should know:

    For $200 I expect more than hit or miss performance. When you get it just right, it works as advertised. On the beast day it worked 20% of the time, even after multiple barrel placements. I bought a $30 Chinese chrono that works 100% of the time, just doesn't have the bells and whistles. I am using my FX for a target now.

  • 4.0 4.0

    3.0 3.0

    Things I liked:

    Small, accurate, reliable

    Things I would have changed:

    First, increase the velocity that the unit will record - it's okay for me for now, but the near future will see higher velocities in air guns. Second, improve the software. (1) make it more functional offline - while not connected. (2) Make the "mail to" data more functional. I have yet to be able to use that data in a spreadsheet like I used to with C.E. Digital Link. Third - Make the unit compatible with Li-Ion batteries. Using the standard alkaline batteries the unit gets flaky connecting after a couple hours of use. Fourth - Provide a comprehensive, printable manual. Videos are a impediment to use during a session even if you know which video contains the info you are looking for.

    What others should know:

    I bought this unit to replace my older Competition Electronics chronograph. I wish I had just bought another C.E. I have always put data data in a spreadsheet to analyze and tune my air guns and now feel limited in enjoying my hobby. If you buy one it might fill your needs perfectly - it took me a couple months to figure out that it did not fill mine. I wish that I had waited until or if they improved the software. I would purchase third party software if it were available - the available software is not up to current standards

    Things I liked:

    When it works it's nice to have. I haven't quite figured it out. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I got it to work in my basement a few times but was never able to get it to give me a reading at the indoor gun range. There is nothing in the instructions that give me any hint as to what I am doing wrong.

    Things I liked:

    Well built. Accurate.

    Things I would have changed:

    It need to have a 1/4 inch screw mount on the bottom so it can be screwed onto a standard tripod. Not all of us want to rubber band it to our barrel.

    What others should know:

    If you are shooting air rifles this is an essential tool you need in your gear bag. If your pellets are too fast they will not be accurate.

    Things I liked:

    Size.

    Things I would have changed:

    This thing is garbage... its reading all over the place, and now it's reading every shot 3 to 5 times and then it won't shut up..it will be in my pocket acting like someone is shooting a semi auto over it.. non stop reading...arrrghhh... screw this thing..going back to my Caldwell

    What others should know:

    This thing had major gremlins..mine worked for less than 50 shots...booooo

    Excellent chrony! Easy to mount and carry to the field.

    Things I would have changed:

    Digital readout on the device itself. Like FX was to have ready in 2021.

    What others should know:

    Pretty accurate next to my other chronys.
