Default chrono

I have this chrono on test for Shaun and the BFTA. So if it`s ok it will be the one used at the GP`s this year.
I`ve tested my cannon on it a few times and what I`ve found is that it is very good. The readings are consistent and accurate. I`ve found that you need to shoot the pellet over it around 100mm over the sensors any higher and it wont read or gives odd readings. Plus it dont like being in a wooded area so I suppose it is light sensitive. Overall on Sunday the chrono performed well and nobody failed!
I didn't go to Norway to look at rocks & water youth, I went to shoot.

CED 2 is probably only consistently reliable chrono out there. Why not get one of those, no issues.

I had two shots over the chrono, 744 and 743 I think, I expected something more like 770.

When this chrono was tried out earlier last year it read what I expected.

It read high for me 10 to 12ft/sec and wouldn't register partners.

If going to legislate do it right CED with Infra Red or nothing.

Spot on for me. It read 815 and that's what I expected. If its the same chrono we used at Sywell, which I think it was, then it read 814 on that day.
Nice to have a decent chrono. The ones used for the GPs had me anywhere between 740 and 790.
I haven't touched my power setting and use Express's and try to get just over 800 fps with my Combro 4.

767 fps for me. Reads 780 on my Chrony at home and 770 on the Crombo. I have been around 760 fps for the last few Winter leagues but still 780 fps on the Chrony.
