Hi Yannick,

I was looking for a Chronograph myself a few months back, and after doing some research, purchased a Competition Electronics ProChrono DLX -I believe this unit offers the features, accuracy and connectivity you are looking for. The smart phone and PC apps work flawlessly, and results can be edited and emailed in various formats. My iPhone app even announces the shots in FPS. Accuracy quoted at +/- 5%. Mine works like a charm, no regrets in choosing this one. There are optional indoor led lighting strips available from the manufacturer, but if I ever have need, I'll just buy a couple rigid 12V LED strips off eBay (which can easily be bent into a curve) and make my own with a 12 volt DC wall Wart supply.

Here is a link to the manufacturers web site: https://www.competitionelectronics.com/ ... hrono-dlx/

I purchased mine from Pyramid Air down in the states but I see one can purchase on Amazon.ca as well: https://www.amazon.ca/Competition-Elect ... B0028MTBJ4

Cheers!

Avianmanor

Great! Ill be ordering this one, found it here in Canada

Seems like the lower pro model is about $40-$50 cheaper but doesn't include the built in Bluetooth

Get a protector for the front of your chrony because you're going to shoot it.
It's not a question of if but when!
I was sure it didn't apply to me but I clipped mine, it's still working but I chipped the back sensor. A protector wouldn't have saved it.
Get a thick piece of lexan so you can still see thru it?

Great, appreciate the advice! The one I ordered is Bluetooth via phone/tablet so I think ill really be able to put anything in front of it since I don't need to see the readout directly.

Thanks

Looks like you can get a debris shield for it:

Not sure what kind of pellet abuse it would survive though...

x2 I shot the back end of mine last week. I said a few choice words, I can tell you, mostly beginning with "f".

You don't really see where the shots are going with a chrony. First thing you know the angle isn't right and hit that dumb sensor.

You are not alone if you end up shooting your Chrony. I worked not very far from their office in Mississauga and took a friend's and my own units in there for repair. Felt a little embarrassed that I had actually managed to shoot it. The lady at the front desk was nonplussed and just asked that I made sure my name, phone number where attached to the units and put them in the bin with the others. There was a bin probably 3' x 3' almost full of Chronys in for repair because they had been shot.

That being said it was just about a week and a half and I got a call to come and pick them up.

She explained it took a little longer because most of the staff was away deer hunting the last week.

The last time I was there :oops: the gentleman in the back explained he gets the best results if he aim the shots to be parallel and the same height as the brass connectors on the diffuser rods.

BTW The staff there are great.

I didn't realise that they are based in Mississauga. That's good to know because I'm in Etobicoke. Was it expensive to replace a sensor?
