I have the Chrony F1 without the printer which is the basic model ($90). Works fine for me. They have a whole bunch of models that do different things. Just depends on what you want it to do.

I have a Chrony Alpha Master.

Right now I'm struggling to get the right lighting in my shop, and so I'm getting a ton of errors.

What I'd like to see in a Chrony, is a modern interface, with mobile phone (iPhone for me) connectivity, with auto data tables, and charts and graphs. Seems like a company could build a robust hardware and software UI, and take over the market.

Get this kit and dont look back its features are amazing. http://www.amazon.com/Caldwell-Ballistic-Precision-Chronograph-Premium/dp/B00HTN5290/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1454088526&sr=8-1&keywords=caldwell+ballistic+precision+chronograph+premium+kit

Travis made this recommendation to me and I will say it is FANTASTIC!  My only suggestion is to buy a shorter, higher quality, audio cable to connect your cell phone.  The included cable is was spotty on the communications.

I got the ProChrono and had to buy the data link separate. Seems like the Caldweld is a much better buy. Lit kit, tripod,data cord for smartphone, carrying case all included. I do like my Prochrono works great. I spent $140 for it and the data link, now I need to spend another $53 for the bluetooth to use my cellphone.

I was incorrect (Not Wrong) the Light kit is an $39.99 option.  I think I'll order one to tune in the Garage.
