In my opinion, a must have item for anybody serious about learning and optimizing their set-up. I’ve owned one of these for around two years now and it’s been great! Tells you everything you need to know about a new band, a new taper, how weather affects performance of certain bands in hot vs cold weather etc. Matching the ball to the correct band and taper. The possibilities really are endless, eye opening, educational, and fun!
This chronograph can be used for catapults and air rifles, and reads in metres p/s, and feet p/s. The chronograph is automatically set to be measured in metres each time it is turned on. The ball must travel between the posts centrally, front and back. When setting this up, ensure the LED’s are facing downwards. Once connected to the four posts and turned on, there should be blue LED’s illuminated in both corners of the LED strip. If you do not see this, you need to turn the LED strip around.
To switch to feet p/s, turn the switch to the ‘on’ position, you will see the numbers beginning to count upwards from 111.1 to 999.9, then the word ‘on’ will appear temporarily, when ‘on’ appears, hit the button to the bottom left of the screen, and F will appear. When the light goes green, you are ready for use in feet p/s. If you get the timing wrong and either press the button too early or too late, just flick the machine off and on, and try again. It’s very simple once you’ve done it a couple of times.
This chronograph emits its own light source, so it can be used in light, or darker areas. It will record up to 20 results, which can be accessed by pressing the button in the bottom left of the screen. Each press will show the next result, and so on.
Comes with spare parts as shown in the pictures, batteries not included. 4 x AA batteries required. Screw thread underneath to allow mounting onto a tripod.
