    Bit of a bizarre question, do you want to buy one?

    Mine was 40 quid but that was about 8 years ago, £50 retail doesnt sound enormous, you probably could have checked quicker on line than posting a thread and answered your own question!

    £50 + 4p&p on that auction site, £50 direct, so seems the going rate and not a rip off. Seems like a loaded question with a hidden agenda really.

    The "maker" is Chronoscopes, who own the design rights. I assume they use chinese manufacturers to keep the prices down. If you were to get it from the chinese supplier, you'd get no back-up, no warranty support or repair - which, btw, is one of the best you can get from any manufacturer.

    Robin Hewitt does a cracking job of providing a chrono that's both affordable and accurate. For the muppets who manage to shoot their CB625s, he repairs them at very little cost. When he had to change components on the board to keep prices down he worked with he shooters to ensure that quality and performance weren't affected.

    If Robin decided to call it a day then we'd be left with Alpha Chronys and Skan: try getting one of those for £50!

    Be careful for what you wish for, you may get it......

    BTW, I have no connection to Chronoscopes or Robin, apart from owning a CB625 for many years: one of the best and most useful bits of kit in my toolbox.

    Combros were £ 40.80p direct from the importers for ages.. Then recently they increased them to £49.95 no doubt because of the amount of Ebay sellers and Folk selling the used on the Forums for a heap more than the original price of 40 quid being asked by said importers....;)
