Paintball
Experience:

Products Used:
Nothing compares to how bad this chrono performs.
Marker Setup: Impulse w/ Vision
68/45K Crossfire
Bob Long chrome drop
Voodoo VFF
New Dezigns Blade trigger
Strengths: Honestly I dont find anything good about this product at all.
Im tempted to say the price (at around $40-$50), but I would have rather flushed my money down the toilet, or better yet, given it to goodwill.
Weaknesses: Lets see:

1) Extremely high amount of ball breakage in the chrono. I tried using a tippmann stock, CP one piece, Lapco Bigshot, JJ ceramic, and SP progressive. All with the same results...Messy cleanup.

2) Very inaccurate readings. My bps readings varied from shot to shot from 220 to 290 to 340 to 160 to 850 (yes I said 850 !)

3) Difficult to clean broken paint from the inside with a squeegee.

4) Way too much money for a product that is so ineffective.

5) Will not fit on all types of barrels (my lapco bigshot).

6) Batteries need to be removed in order to reset it.
Conclusion: I have never been a huge fan of ViewLoader products, and now after using this chronograph, I dont think I will ever purchase another VL product again.

Dude you just need to learn how to use this product. I own one of these. Learn how to use it and take care of it and youll get good readings. PS if you are using c02 then when you run outa paint or when you dry fire then the puff of c02 screws the chrono and makes it have really werid readings.

well, i was shooting my tippy 98 and guess what? i was shooting paintballs like a mofo out of hell, i really enjoyed the high grade explosives in the chamber the other day, but idk if the man in the hat says that the gun can shoot 850 bps, that the dude was probably high , or at least i hope so.
