Review: This chronograph works really well but it does have a major flaw. It does NOT work with reballs. The reason being, as stated from the manufacturer, is that because the ROF uses microwaves, it needs something metallic or liquid to reflect off of in order to get a reading. Solids, such as reballs, do not cause a doppler effect because they are dielectric while paintballs, arrows, etc are conductive. That major flaw being said, it does work pretty well. It handles BPS very well and is pretty good for velocity. It's accurate within 1%, which is about 3fps. That's a pretty large variance.
Conclusion: Its probably the best all around out there at the moment but the price and the inability to be used with reballs makes it very handicapped.
