Good morning all
I am looking at getting a budget friendly chroni. Which can you recommend?
PS. I own a bayonet style which I cannot get to function.
I got the Chrony F-1 from TechnoPro (@ R1900) a few weeks ago.
Seem to work well (meaning I get readings that I would more or less expect), but was a bit disappointed with the quality of the box. But then, it is the lowest cost one I could find.
They definitely work much better if you can miss them, otherwise go with Blud's Caldwell.
Thank you for the replies all.
I bought myself the Caldwell Ballistic Precision Chroni, works well and plays well with my iPhone. Came with a massively long mini-jack cable, which works a charm however you require the adapter thingy for the iPhone X as it no longer has a mini jack.
A nice feature as well is the FPS/FT-LBS display.
I do note that the Caldwell app has bluetooth capabilities, has anyone looked into the possibility of a bluetooth connection?
If you have the cheaper "Sporter" version, you cannot set the sensitivity high enough. Someone posted about using magnets to extend the field and got his to work.

As you already have another chrony now, moot point.

You want budget friendly? This is it.
