I want to buy a timer. Will be used mostly for setting a par time for dry fire practice. Will be thrown in bag for matches just in case.

I didnt see anything in the pocket pro 2 manual about setting par times. Is the pocket pro 1 the one to get?

This will be my first timer so im clueless.

Thanks

The pocket pro 2 does have a par time function.

Pocket Pro 1 is the better timer in my opinion.

I like the Pocket Pro 1 as well but don't have any expectation of either model actually fitting in your pocket. Pro tip, cover the beeper with a couple layers of blue painters tape to mute it somewhat during indoor dryfire.

Pocket pro 1 is simpler and more intuitive, #2 has more features.

Don't be fooled! If it's got a '2' it's got to be better!

 

On a more serious note - I don't know if the PP has volume control, but my family really appreciates the ability to lower the start beep to something appropriate for indoor use. The PP2 makes that easy.

 

Since I dryfire way more than I live fire it's a good tradeoff for me.

 

YMMV

It's not that easy, considering you have to scroll through 37 screens of bullshit before getting to the volume setting.

I like the volume control feature of the 2, I hate that you can only adjust the par times by 10ths.  I think as long as the answer is "Not a Shotmaxx", you'll be fine.

Shotmaxx is fine if you're alright sending them in every year to get replaced. Had my first one die after light use, second one seems to be going strong.

 

Timers suck ass in general. The PP series seems to be the ubiquitous "at least they kinda work" ones though, so they tend to be a good investment.

I am on my 2nd Shotmaxx. 1st one worked perfectly..... Wife was organizing things and threw it out... Don't ask!

I have not used the 2nd one yet but expect it to work just as well as the original. I like the watch type timer rather than some big ass thing hanging from a pocket

Apparently they have a known issue (at least back when I did the RMA) where the speakers can die. I do like how portable it is.

 

Like I said, there's no perfect answer until Glock perfects one. They all suck in some department.

I had 5, one purchased, 4 replacements, all of them would start freaking out around 80% battery life.  It would be a great product if it actually worked. Give me a big blue brick to hang from my pocket until DAA figures out their battery issues.

Can someone explain why the ced7000 sucks?

I have owned one for years and its fine. I dropped baller money on the $8 belt clip and $10 skin to protect my sweet investment. It is seriously the last piece of gear I would gear queer over.

It's fine, but still more of a PITA than a watch timer by a large amount

I like having a battery I can replace at the range. I'd never remember to charge, or would forget the timer and leave it on the charge cable. I mean, I would if I ever owned a CED7000 with a green skin.

The PP2 is pretty durable, too. It's been thrown across the range a few times with nary a scratch. Except to the body. And the screen. The battery connector came loose and needed to be soldered (thanks, Stubb!), but the CED7K was just too annoyingly small, with controls I didn't like, a beeper that was annoying, and that aforementioned need to use a cable to charge it. 

All the timers are way too expensive and all suck in that way for certain.

I have friend that has broken 3 pp2s in the same time I have owned the one ced7000.

I bought a second ced that I keep in my range bag with my other inner belt.

Pocket Pro 2s suck balls.
