I have the Pact and the CE Pocket Pro.  I'm saying Pocket Pro.


No one likes me, and I don't care.

The PACT Club Timer has an adjustment on the inside that can be adjusted for sensitivity.

I have adjusted it ad naueseum.  Sometimes the time will indicate hundreds of seconds in a string for time when it should be 6 seconds. Flaky. Thanks.

My Pact shows first shots at .01 and sometimes doesn't pick up shots 6ft away. A real Hendrix.

Anyone use the CED 7000?  Is it worth a shit?

The interface is way better than the Pocket Pro or PACT timers, but I find that the display washes out in sunlight.

Yes but one needs a functional timer to train the fookin parrot.

Glad I don't have a parrot repeating some of the crazy crap I spew forth. Especially after Bering corrupted by Doodie.

The best timer is the one your shooting buddy owns.

I like the 7K but I've had it since I started in 08 and it's getting old. The buttons have to be pushed pretty hard to work. The basic blue box ones seem to last forever but aren't fancy.

I've owned the PACT and a few others, and currently used the CED7000 (original). 

I absolutely loved my PACT timer.  It worked flawlessly for me and I tweaked it out for volume and sensitivity control.  Unfortunately, they are not water-proof and running one too many shooters in the rain finally killed it.

I really like the 7K...  Good interface, et al.

My ONLY gripe with the 7K is the screen...  I'd like it to be 1) larger... frankly, the bigger the better, and 2) use a display that is easy to read in the sunlight... maybe one of those like the B/W Kindles use...  no washout.

I don't care about color...  I want it readable regardless of angle or lighting... AND I want the scoring RO to be able to read it easily when I hold it up while I clear the shooter.

________________________________

The CED7000PRO - APPEARS to have a taller screen and the time displayed in run mode APPEARS to be larger, and it APPEARS to be a higher res screen that should be easier to read in the sun.... but I've never seen/used one.

The refresh rate would be WAY too slow.

Right... not saying use that exact screen, but one that uses that "e-paper" tech with sufficient refresh rate...

As I understand it, "E-paper" and "sufficient refresh rate" are mutually exclusive at this point.

Ah... OK, you know more about it than I do...  I don't have one and don't follow Kindle or any of the tablet, et al. market.  Was just using it as an example of what I want...  read in all light conditions... sufficently ooarge for Scoring RO to see when I hold it over my shoulder without having to climb into my back pocket...

It would take a second to update the screen but the last shot is sort of defined by nothing else happening for a while.

 

Review might kind of suck without a well-designed display.

I just picked up one of these since the PACT I was using decided it didn't want do splits anymore. After about a year and a half it would show overall time Ok, but split times / individual shot times were jacked. Overall time would be 7 seconds , 2 nd shot time would be 800 seconds in review.

The review screen on the pact was better. You could see the total time and first shot on the screen together the review showed both the total time and split for each shot. The pact also stops recording shots when you hit review, this is a big deal on a public range with other shooters.

The pocket pro is easier to switch between delay and instant. It is harder to see splits and shot times since they have to be reviewed separately. The biggest pain is that it does not stop recording shots when you hit review. If you are on a public range with other shooters around it is impossible to review, since every time another shot goes off it displays the time for that shot and you have to start over on reviewing from the first shot.
