I was at the RMAC this last weekend. It's a Utah shooting competition with all the big names there. They had a raffle and I won the yet to be available, release is very soon, FX mini chrony.

Range Y

My son has been lusting for one since he heard about them. So he was VERY excited. Tried it out this morning. It syncs to a a smart phone through blue tooth and will announce fps by voice if you would like it to. Also can enter pellet information and it will calculate energy. I don't think lighting is an issue. It works placed just under the barrel and I tried it in front too. Pretty nifty for compact field work. AAA batteries so no recharging.

I was told just under $200. I've not heard an official price yet. Guessing $199.

Edit:

Found this...

Utah Airguns has them in stock waiting for release permission.

If it's reliable and accurate, I'm happy for you, since chronographs are known to be finicky at times. 

The blue tooth connectivity capability is a nice feature.  If it was me, I still would have put a numerical readout on it somewhere, but you certainly can't beat the price you paid.  Never look a gift horse in the mouth, right?

Safe and Happy Shooting!

At the shop they had it up against their high end chrony and it was very consistent. A few weeks back I'd posted this thread about the differences in three Chronys.

I like that this one isn't dependent on ideal lighting. It uses Doppler radar (not that I understand that) so a light source is not an issue.

Normally I'm not a raffle player. Just when I saw the chrony and knew how bad my son wanted one I threw some money in on tickets. It was interesting before the event I couldn't find my Atlas bipod. I knew my son had borrowed it in the past and I seldom use them. He saw them on the raffle table and put tickets in the jar. He won the bipod and I won the chrony plus a gun case. Weird how that worked out.

So this is just a Chinese doplar chrony been around for years. FX has their branded app. They sell them for $200. 

You can buy the original for $119 google carbon DR. It works just fine with the FX app. 

Another option, the $69 option, Acetech ac5000 or the $80 Acetech ac6000

Looks similar, hard to find and the FPS isn't enough for pellet guns.

Reviews were hard on it.

Pfffft it’s the actual original importer. How clueless can ya be? The FPS goes higher based on the app used. The FX app ties into the other ones  SMH 

FX didn’t invent it, didn’t make it, didn’t improve it, didn’t even make the app. The only thing the did was put their name on it. 

A simple equivalent. Beeman slapping a name on a gun. Or Daystate or FX slapping names on carbon fiber bottles from Inocom

I think I prefer being clueless than come across as a prick. XOXOXO 😉
