I have had one of the new CED M2's since they came out. It is wonderful, and reads much better in low light conditions than the original mellenium. I also have the Infared Screen kit, but don't use it outside. I still get very consistant measurements with it using the factory sky screens.

NOTE: do not buy this chrono if you ever plan on testing arrow speeds from bows or crossbows. It will only accurately and consistant read arrows WITOUT fletchings (Bare Shaft). The fletchings cause errors as it thinks the chrono is seeing muzzle blast.

Since the 35P is no longer available I had figured the CED millennium was absolutely the best choice, especially with the IR option.
It's a very good Chrono, but it doesn't work (doesn't turn on, doesn't work at all!!) in freezing temperatures unless you keep it warm. If you read the manual, it even says the temp range is above 32F

If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.

My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives
