    The Pact Club Timer III or the Pocket Pro II Timer CEI-4700

    I am trying to decide which shot timer to buy: The Pact Club Timer III or the Pocket Pro II Timer CEI-4700. They are only about $3 apart on Amazon.

    I am not a competition shooter and I only shoot at an indoor range. I will use the timer to improve my shooting skill. I would like to it when dry firing at home too. My indoor range has 8 lanes.

    I am leaning toward the Pact Club Timer III because it appears to be less complicated to use compared to all of the different screens and settings in the Pocket Pro II. The Pact Club Timer also has a lifetime warranty compared to the Pocket Pro II 2 year warranty.

    My main concern with both timers is that at my indoor range the timer will pick up gunfire from the other lanes and will be triggered. Each timer has a sensitivity adjustment although the Pact Club Timer instruction sheet suggests not to "mess" with it's sensitive adjustment.

    Can anyone give me some guidance or recommendation on which timer to purchase especially taking the sensitivity to adjacent lanes into account?

    Thanks, Bill

    BilG174, I would go with the Pact Club Timer. I've only used one once, but it seems to be built better, easier to use, and numbers appear bigger. I have a Pocket Pro II and am less than impressed with it.

    All I have used to date is a smart phone app but, my PACT III came yesterday and when we get better weather I will try it out.

    Its bigger than I expected but, looks fairly simple to run.

    The one I used is just called "Splits" and was a free one. I had a Samsung phone then so I am not sure about the iphone but, I bet you there is a decent free one to try out. Mine was on a work phone so now I am back to my personal flip phone hence the PACT III purchase.

    The Club timer is a PITA for me, as you have to hold the button down, then release it to start timing. It may have other modes of operation, but I'm not aware of them. My club uses them for the higher-level USPSA matches, but I'm so used to the Competition Electronics models I may just be stuck in my ways.

    i use the CED7000 with the rotating belt clip, i don't have to remove the timer from my belt to read it, it just rotates up and you can read it and let it drop back down.

    I use the Pact at an outdoor range for anywhere from 6-8 lanes. Should be perfect for your uses.

    When your setting times the first setting is instant or delay if you do delay once you hit start it will give you roughly 3ish seconds. Also once you have times correct you can wait to hit go until ready for the chime.
