I have got this to work outside only once. Sunny, overcast, nothing mattered. It gave me error after error. I practice with wax bullets inside my garage and it picked them up consistently but that is it. I then bought a Competition Electronics Pro Chrono Digital Chronograph and it works flawlessly. So if your looking for a new one and have never used one, don't waste your money like I did. Go straight for the Pro Chrono as they are both about the same price.
It's very primitive and I'm glad I got this red version instead of the ones that have more features in the head unit because I'd never use the features due to frustration with the user interface.
I would think they could come up with a better controller that would plug into the cord from main unit which appears to just be a serial connection. Boom, instant upgrade!
That said it does work just fine although an auto-off feature would save a lot of expensive 9v batteries...
I couldn't get a reading on multiple days of trying this thing out. The "tech support" said that it sometimes has trouble on sunny days. "So you're saying I shouldn't buy it if I live in Arizona?" He said I should try turning so the sun falls on it differently and shoot a different direction. "OK, guys. I'm moving the range 30 degrees left. Everybody pick up the benches. Get a tractor for the embankments." Seriously? OK, so maybe if you live in another part of the country...
I got a ProChrono. Works fine. Wish it folded up, though I'm glad the rods and shades don't jump to pieces like the Chrony.
- Folds up nicely. I really like this.
- Awkward to open up. Two-piece rods end up falling apart. Three-piece "sun shade" jump like grasshoppers from your hand.
- Awkward interface. Come on, guys. Spring for another couple of 4-cent buttons to make navigating the "features" easier.
- Poor performance. But maybe that just depends on where you live and whether or not you can shoot in any direction or fashion a sun shade out of various products and hope for no wind.
Otherwise, I'm hitting the error message pretty much every time I use it at least once.
Don't get me wrong, when it works, it's glorious and ego boosting to see your firearms and mods be validated by an increase in FPS.
But that's only when you can get it to work. I've tried moving it to the shade, adjusting the sunshades, shooting close, shooting far, putting it on a tri-pod, putting it on the floor, putting it on a table - you get the picture. I've tried a lot of options. And still, I'll get the ERR message when I shoot.
If this worked all the time, 5 stars. But since I spend more than 50% of my time cursing at it wishing it worked, I can't recommend this product at all.
