    I came up with this list by posting a thread a while ago. So these were identified in that thread and that is how they came to be in this poll.

    Looks like I'm in the majority. (Oehler)

    Well, early on I was in the majority!

    I use a PACT, but I don't like it. It only registers in bright sunlight, and occasionally shows some obviously incorrect readings.

    I don't want bells and whistles, I just want dead-nuts reliable. I can do the math myself.

    I would vote that I use a pact, but I have never been happy with it since first use, therefore I don't use it. Brand new in the box Pact pro. I do look at it from time to time, I even get tempted to try it again from time to time.

    I am however, interested in finding one that will work properly.

    After two more frustrating sessions, I've just dumped the PACT, and bought a CED M2. First test, tomorrow.

    Time to buy a new one looks like poll results merit a serious look at Shooting Chrony.

    I'm still using my old Chrony Model F-1 that I purchased in 1999 or so. It was cheap, but it still works and seems to register no matter what the conditions. I was thinking of replacing it for some reason and had been looking at the PACT. After reading the posts however, I think I'll wait since this one keeps on chugging despite some abuse. lol

    We are now offering the CED M2 chronograph at the LRH Store.

    I have been using one for over a year and I'm very happy with it. It replaces an Oehler I used to have.

    Oehler is making a short run of 35Ps. They may be one of the best. I have never had mine fail. They will only take so many orders and when it is filled they won't make more for now. They are expecting delivery in Aug.

    I ordered the Oehler several weeks ago, orders are expected to start shipping towards the end of this August.
