i saw nico's post somewhere else, and it confirmed what i suspected (no chrony) platinum crepe red 32's ina 4/4/4 CHAIN @ 80 degrees, 1/2" lead, 278 fps average. .31 lead ball was getting 305-308. that is definitely killin' time.

I just ordered a chrony and intend to validate these speeds for myself.

He pulls about 3/4 butterfly. That's the only way to go with the red 32's, ya gotta max em out

I love chains! I like being able to replace individual rubber bands as they break, so no band gets wasted.
I am also way too lazy to cut and tie flatbands.
What Crony are you getting? I want to get one too one day.

I have the f1 ... and I live in the Pacific northwest ... on Vancouver Island. I always use the Chrony indoors. For that, I found I had to have their auxilary light fixture, which requires the rods and diffusers. Seems the sun is generally not shining when I want to do a velocity test.

Cheers ...... Charles

What kind of rubber bands do you use?

Tirador seems to be using braids, not chains judging by his avatar...

So would a plain jane F1 be sufficient or is the fancier one more desirable?
