    Things I liked:

    Nothing - doesn't work at all.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make it work - and stop selling it until it does.

    What others should know:

    I am calling PA tomorrow to get a refund on this junk. The unit I received flat did not work at all under any lighting conditions. I was only able to get the chrony to register velocity a few times by putting a large piece of white legal paper over the entire unit in bright sun - but the paper would blow off at the slightest wind. I tried it on sunny days and cloudy days with and without the sun shades exposed to open sky and under a porch cover. Shot straight over the sensors from 1" to 5" above the sensor. Nothing worked. Every now and then it would register a velocity and otherwise it would just read error 1, error 2, and no reading at all. Don't buy this unit unless you read some online reviews saying they copped to the problem and fixed it.

    Things I liked:

    fun when it reads...

    Things I would have changed:

    more sensitive pickup, my beeman eco 9.65grn alloy .22 pellets only trigger error1, my 14.66 ftt 5.53's read 3 of 8 fired, read 8 of 8 finally after using 21.14grn h&n's

    What others should know:

    doesnt pick up small low density pellets at all...

    Things I liked:

    Ease of use; compact- folds up in an easy to carry and store unit; Accurate; gives read-outs of not only fps but in a series: high fps, low fps, average fps, extreme spread and standard deviations; Grate value for the money- I can remember when owning a chronograph was way out of the average persons budget. Thanks Chrony!!

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing. This unit has everything your typical range rat could ever want.

    What others should know:

    You must buy the lighting accessory if you plan on using it indoors. While the Chrony itself is a great value, the lamps are quite overpriced for what you get. That being said, the chrony and light package together is still a great value, just a little less so due to the overpriced lamps.

    Things I liked:

    The very competitive price, fast shipping.........! chrony worked perfectly, and the remote display is out of the way of stray pellets.

    Things I would have changed:

    nothing...

    What others should know:

    Getting ready to tune hw97k. It's shooting 850fps with a broken spring. With the chrony I'll know how good the tune is, and be able to determine what the gun is shooting in the future. Any serious spring piston airgunner should have one of these invaluable tools.........

    Things I liked:

    It works great. Simple and easy to use. You definitely need to invest in a tripod if you are going to use this in front of a benchrest at a gun range. I used it to test my new Air Arms TX200 MkIII with the Air Arms 4.52 .177 pellets. I was getting slightly below and above 900 feet per second with these pellets. FPS dropped to 836 with the JSB Exact Heavy pellets. I think I will stick with the 4.52 pellets.

    Things I would have changed:

    Lots of little parts. Once I took the chrony out of the factory box I couldn't get all of the pieces and parts to fit back into the box. Don't throw the factory box away.

    What others should know:

    You need a 9 volt battery for this chrony.

    Things I liked:

    I had the F1 and would much rather the Alpha Master for a few more dollars. The portable screen keeps it out of the way of stray pellets that my F1 screen was unable to avoid on a few occasions....

    Things I would have changed:

    I would make the front of the Chrony thicker to protect the first sensor.....

    What others should know:

    Changing the angle that the projectile crosses the sensors can and will change the speed that the Chrony detects dramatically.... A gun being shot across a Chrony needs to be secured so that it shoots along the same path each time for maximum accuracy in recording speeds......

    Things I liked:

    Rapid problem identification. Identified problems immediately on one air rifle and air pistol. I knew the rifle was weak, but not that weak, and I was clueless that the pistol was that bad until I saw the results.

    Things I would have changed:

    nothing, fantastic product.

    What others should know:

    A must if you like keeping your air guns tuned, it really takes the guess work out.

    Things I liked:

    Compact and ease of setup.Helps to check the preformance of mods,ammo,pressures,and difference in fps with each setup.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    Fast shipping and fair price from pyramid air.

    Things I liked:

    Compact and reliable as long as I keep my pellets over both the camera eye

    Things I would have changed:

    Make the shot number either stay on the screen for 3 seconds or show the shot number in between shots. I can't focus on the target and then a half second later look at the Chrony screen to see the shot number.

    What others should know:

    You need to use two 40 watt, 4" x 1" bulbs just over the white diffusers. I used one 100 watt bulb 24 inches high and got odd FPS numbers and when I moved the bulb to 15 inches, the FPS numbers went up 250 FPS.

    Things I liked:

    If you are an airgunner you need this tool. It helps you tune and trouble shoot. I would not have known my new Walther Falcon Hunter had a damaged main spring. Started shooting only 575fps.

    Things I would have changed:

    Wished it came with the bag.

    What others should know:

    You need this tool. I had a chance to buy this, or another airgun. I made the correct decision and bought this chrony. Buy this from PYRAMYDAIR, you will not be sorry.

    Things I liked:

    I really like the way this unit is built. It is constructed with materials that will last for a very long time. It can be folded up to a compact size and is very easy to unfold and assemble for use. It is a quality unit that is accurate and user friendly. I'm glad I choose this one!!!!!!

    Things I would have changed:

    I wouldn't change anything as far as the unit as a whole. I feel it will last for many years of service as long as it is taken care of and not abused.

    What others should know:

    This is a "must have" tool for airgunners or anyone who owns guns. It is also a great tool for anyone who likes to collect valuable data on modifications and overall performance on their guns. I love using this tool!!!!!!!

    Things I liked:

    Very strong product, easy handle and the screen part is out the main body of chrony with long cable, that's help a lot of and can put it on the rest to see better the shoot speed.

    Things I would have changed:

    the screw connection in the base is too dificult to screw at the first time,

    What others should know:

    high sensible equipment and is better put the rifle between 1 to 4 feet of distance from the rifle barrel to the chrony and you can get much better data for your airgun
