Re: What is the best chronograph?

With the Oehler 35 do you need the Skyscreens. I have been using a Pro Chrono for about 6 years and I use it on a cloudy day without the screens.

Thanks.

Re: What is the best chronograph?

I've had my Oehler 35P since '96. Won it at an IPSC shoot. (Still can't believe it was still on the prize table when I got up there!)

It doesn't do all the fancy stuff that some of the new chrono's will do, but I do still have some math skills, and it does me good to use them sometimes.

It's been "bullet proof" all these years. Only thing I've done is put paper and ink cartridges in the printer and a few batteries in it. I like that I can take the back off and shut the printer off when I don't really need to use it. Wish I could do it from the outside, but it's no big deal to take out four screws.

Don't really see the need to spend any money on anything else until this one is dead and gone. At the rate it's going, it may outlast me.

But again, do you need the Skyscreens in place to work with this unit. Or do you just wait for cloudy days as I do.

I always run my sky screens and my results have been very good.

Re: What is the best chronograph?

I have had my Oehler 35P for about 12 years and have found it totally reliable. Love the self checking of the 3rd screen. This unit does not seem as sensitive to perfect alignment with the bullet path as other cheaper units I have tried. I always use the skyscreens so I do not know how well it works without them. I have found out that no chronograph will work when used next to an electric fence that is on. Something to keep in mind if your chrony starts acting "stupid".
