    I have been lurking here in the shadows for a long time. The knowledge I have gained from this forum has been unmeasureable. Hopefully you all can help me again. Recently I "damaged" my chronograph and am in need of a replacement. It looks like there is some new tech out there and I'm looking for advice. Magnetospeed? Accoustic, or just go with a replacement shooting chrony? Thank you for your help in advance.

    I am not impressed with my shooting chrony, it seems to be 100+ fps fast on all of its readings. I trust my old pro chrono more.

    I really like my Magnetospeed chronograph. I have tried other types but the Magnetospeed is the best by far.

    Using a magneto as well and loving it. Sometimes is can be a little difficult to get clamped on well but other than that it is awesome.

    Magnetospeed all the way. I have a CED Millennium 2 chronograph and several chronys, and what a headache they are with major changes in my velocities dealing with the clouds/sun/rain/wind/snow. I cannot think of how much money I've shot through optical chronos and no reading. It will save you money in the long run.

    You can get them direct from MagnetoSpeed. This is where I got mine.
