1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    That looks quite smart Stevie, never heard of them nor know where they retail from. Might be worth Emailing them.

    Look to work in a similar way too the Crombo.

    I like the way it plots your shot string on a graph. Might have to invest in one of these.

    All the pictures look like CAD output rather than pictures of actual devices. Would like to see one in the flesh, as it were.

    I'm going away on Wednesday and wouldn't have chance to test it for 3 weeks. If no one else has bought one by the time I get home then I'll take the plunge. Being able to make graphs etc without a android will be useful :)

    I have one. Only used it once so early days but works very well. Solidly built.

    The thing I like about it vs the Combro is that the channel is much larger and open at the top, so you don't have to worry so much about shooting it, and I always found adjusting the plastic parts of the Combro a bit fiddly. No adjustment is necessary with the Bluechron.

    I got the basic model because the software isn't released yet and will come free with the £20 upgrade.

    So far, I'm very pleased.

    Nice one. Any idea when the software is due? Not worth me buying until then.

    It does seem strange that a company would bring a new product to market with nothing more than an illustration, and one which doesn't really show its best features.

    Anyway, the unit arrived boxed with loads of bubble wrap. Included were the unit, instructions, charging/data cable and a spanner to tighten the nut which joins the two parts of the unit:

    [​IMG]



    The shoot tube (actually a channel) is the most obvious difference between this and the Combro. It's much bigger and open at the top:

    [​IMG]



    The recommended method of attaching to the barrel is 2 elastic bands (same as Combro), but I have always attached the Combro with a cable tie and intend to continue using this method for the Bluechron. Attachment feels solid, secure and in line with the barrel.

    The various screens are easy to use and intuitive. One minor detail is that you have to navigate 3 screens to change the pellet weight. I would like to see this made quicker/easier to do. Also, fps is currently the largest part of the display. I would like to have an option to change this to ft-lbs (which I currently need my glasses to see!)

    [​IMG]



    Indoors, the display is bright and clear. Outdoors in direct sunlight is not so good. I believe you can choose a different model with a sunlight readable screen, but as I do my testing indoors this is not a problem for me (the shutter speed of the camera has caused part of the reading to 'disappear' but actually all of the reading was visible - this is not a fault of the Bluechron.

    So I contacted the manufacturer with suggestions for improving the firmware as mentioned above: ability to have ft-lbs as the largest part of the display, but particularly the pellet weight adjustment which is a real faff compared to the competition (Skan for example is a 1 button press to access the weight adjustment, and 1 button to go back to shoot mode). Here is their response:

    Still no sign of the software release though :confused:

    I was interested in this thread right up go the last line that stated the Software is still not released. Especially as that post was dated 2 months ago, summer has now come and gone on the calendar at least

    Has the software been seen yet or is it a false promise?
