    I didn't find this topic via search.
    Got to shoot with a timer last weekend, now I 'need' one. They seem like '80's technology and bulky plastic.
    I do like the Pie's larger display (old man eyes).
    What's your experience?

    I have the pocket pro II and it works great. Been banged around and dropped a few times but it still keeps on ticking.

    I see the PACT used more than anything...….. It's like 80's electronics... it takes a little bit to figure it out.
    The Competition Electronics is a little simpler to use., but not quite as loud as the PACT.
    I don't have any problems seeing either display.
    I have no idea about the Pie.

    I also have the Pocket Pro II. Works great, haven't had any issues.

    I've seen a number of Pacts that kill batteries in storage.

    My PPII seems pretty solid, though the off function screws up sometimes and doesn't work, it auto shuts down and batteries still last close to a year with like 250-300 days of 15min to 2 hour use.

    I have no idea which is louder, never needed higher than level 3 on mine.

    If I didn't have one I'd look hard at AMG labs.

    I have the original pocket pro and it does everything I need it to do. I dropped it over the Christmas holiday and broke the battery compartment. I called them and for $2.70 2 new ones were shipped to me. They are all pretty much the same IMHO. IIRC correctly the original Pocket Pro was the cheapest.

    Man I agree. Might have to order one of those and try it.
