Shooting Crony F1
« on: May 09, 2011, 06:45:02 PM »
Since it was requested.

Likes:
Simple to use. Easy to read up to 20' away if it is in the shade. With the sun hitting it you can't read it as far do to the glare. Keep in mind my eyesight is 20/20. No memory. Which means I can run the strings the way I want to or just step out to grab a couple of readings if need be.

Dislikes:
It takes a while to set up. If they are going to have it fold and break down to be compact the arms and sun shades should all fit inside.

I'm happy with this chronograph. If I needed to document my strings it would have made sense to step up to a model with memory and printing ability.

I shot over this crony with my PC77 at point blank range and it read the shot. I also kept my shots within 6-10" above the sensors but I got as high as 12" and it still would read the shots.

The tripod worked fine for me. Of course there wasn't any wind while I was shooting. I like the ability to adjust the hight and it is simple to change it's location.

Yeah, the height adjustment is a must. I would like to know the brand of that tripod.

It is just a cheap freebie... it came with a bank account.
