The FX is good if you've got some space to work with. It doesn't work well if you are shooting into a target a few feet away from my experience. But most people have 7 or 8 yards minimum in their basement so probably not an issue. I like to test from a couple feet away when working on a gun so I use a cheap Chinese one like this #Aliexpress C$ 65.79 | English version Rechargeable LCD WIFI connect Initial velocity shooting range velometer 120sets of data shutdown save
https://a.aliexpress.com/_dUYiqFm

It has wifi spreadsheet as well that you can connect to on your phone to see the results as you shoot. I use this one and it seems very accurate.

I've also used this one a lot. #Aliexpress C$ 43.15 26%OFF | Muzzle Speed Meter Velocimetry Velocity Anemometer Valence Tester with Tripod
https://a.aliexpress.com/_dWtKfzQ

The good thing about both of these is they have infrared lighting built in, so no need for special lights or daylight. They work pretty much 100 % with no errors.
My caldwell I was always fighting with it, trying this light and that and was relieved when I finally shot it and broke it for good, lol!

Lol thanks!
If you'd like a good one with a great app on your phone and ability to shoot at targets at the same time definitely look at the fx. Works great.

I don't trust Chinese accuracy. Have five different models of digital thermometers including infrared pistol . The readings are all over the chart, non show the same and way to apart, so when need precision, I use old analog Taylor. If you want to be sure, stick to F1 Chrony

I have to get a new 9V battery. But from my previous tests between the Chinese muzzle chrony and the Chrony F1. They're around par.

Ive gotten numbers plus or minus 2 FPS. With the Chrony F1, you need to deal with lighting, a couple inches vertical, changes the FPS. Distance changes the FPS. I have less errors with the Chinese than the F1. It's accurate enough.

My F1 only comes out to do comparison, or to chrony my PBs.

FX chronograph doesn’t require light, and gives off less errors. All I see with standard chronographs, is people fiddling with it to get the correct light. Doesn’t work well on darker days. I’ve chronographed in the Dark, can’t do that with a standard chrony.

I also don’t understand Wes’ comment about space, because the FX grabs the reading within a few inches, has nothing to do with target distance.
