What's wrong with the Oehler or are you just wanting two chronos?

If you are selling your Oehler, name your price. I'll take another one any day!

Pro- Crono. I like the compactness and portability of it. I also bought the remote switch for it. The switch comes with a 10" cord so that one knows that the unit is were it needs to be.

I am not particularly interested in EXACT data from a crono. I only want to see relative speeds to know roughly where I am at. The rest of it will be apparent on the paper out yonde. I wanted the most portable setup I could find that I could manipulate from the bench. I am satisfied wit my setup.

I paid $375 for mine at auction this time last year. Had a problem with the paper feed and the Oehler folks fixed it, no charge.

I have a Oehler mdl 12, that I've had for 20 or so years, a good solid unit. I purchased a mdl 35P some 10yrs., ago and pleased with it as well.

I realize Oehler is not manufacturing these chrono's any longer and I would imagine the gentlemen asking for suggestions may want something currently availiable to him. IMO I think the Pact "Pro" is a desirable chrono to have, it's the only commercial chrono I like as well and maybe even better than my Oehler's.

Ohler 33 with new screens...

if you have an ohler why are you asking ? it is considered the standard by which all others are measured. three screens, auto checking of the speed. and a printer, and all on your bench, not down range some where.


having said that and since they are no longer sold to the public, i think the CEDII would be my next choice unless one had $800 for the one sold by neco.

yes i use an ohler with printer(35p)

Keep in mind that Mike is talking about the CED II. I have an original CED Millenium and got rid of a Pact Pro to get it. I wanted the bigger display and to be able to hook up to my PC with the data. I don't think I ever regretted selling any gun item as much as that Pact Pro. This CED I have is no where near the quality of that Pact.

Given a choice of either for free, I'd personally take the Pact over the Ohler. That is not the norm and most guys would say the opposite.

If cost was no object, I'd take the ones from Kurzzeit hands down. These babies are nice.

They also make some high end models, but I don't know where the point of diminishing returns is on price. I bet some would find it falls short of their top of the line models.

AND
just to balance the books

i sold my pact chrono to buy my ohler.
my pact spent more time back at the factory in plano tx getting fixed than at the range in use.
it was a piece of doggy doodoo.
there is no way i would pay hard earned money for a pact product.

things may have changed

mike in co
ps...
i looked at your link.
this is the system i refered to, sold in the us by NECO...$800
what i do not like from what i see,it say "adjustable from 17 to 50 cal"...i dont adjust my ohler to switch calibers...second issue is the 14 inch spread of the screens vs the 2-4-8 feet available with the ohler.
