The Virtue Clock Chronograph is a state of the art chrono made specifically for the game of paintball. It has many features not found in other chronographs and is revolutionary in many of its features, both for the player, and the field, not to mention the referees.

Let me begin by saying this is an absolute must for anyone who techs paintball guns. The ability to see fps consistency in a string is absolutely crucial. Sometimes you can't visually see drop-off (say you're working at an indoor field, and the chrono station isn't long enough). The virtue clock takes any guess work out of the equation.
The things I like..
Screen easy to read in sun.
Holding the button gives large FPS readout for quick chronoing.
Records 15 shots and can cycle through each shot
Has Game Timer with Break timer
Pretty good battery life
Portable and easy to use
Reads BPS accurately.
Things I don't like:
I've personally had 3 of these develop issues. The first 2 would spazz out and start reading random numbers, it would also not read shots at all sometimes. If you set the clock down on the table it would always read 17bps and 325fps... I think I enabled cheater mode somehow .. The third one had a battery harness short.
Virtue took care of all the defective units I've had with no issue. (I work at a field so we have several, and I have one).
One thing field owners should note. These chrono's are NOT water proof. They are NOT designed to be used out in the rain or left at a chrono station in the rain. Give virtue a call about that, they have some suggestions on how to waterproof the casing, but if you use it in the rain expect the screen to get ****ty until you pull it apart and let it dry for a few days.
With all of the above in mind, I still think these are the excellent chronographs. Fields should have 1-2 of these for tournaments. It makes spot checking players far easier, and it's the only reliable way IMO to check BPS measurements. Plus the game timers are useful for running smaller tournaments or tourneys with no scoreboard. Techs should have one to be sure their guns are tuned to perfection.
