    Magneto V3 or Labradar

    Hi, wondering if anyone's got one to move on before paying top $...

    PM me if you've got something suitable.

    Cheers

    Labradar are nearly $1500 on TM, apparently they are the NZ agent too. Precision shooter had them cheaper, but I don't know if they had any in stock.

    I picked up a 2nd hand V3, it works well but really affects POI (about 4 inches higher at 100m!) so load development needs to be done separately from velocity measurement.

    They are in stock too

    Long story behind that pricing ... some beers needed over that
    TM also are expensive so you’ll find it higher there

    @skirk there is a magnetospeed v3 on TM at the moment, first one I've seen since I grabbed one in October.
    They generally seem to go for around $500, plus or minus.

    Hi Team,

    Labradar available on our site, $1149.

    Here is a link to download Labradars quick setup instructions: https://mylabradar.com/download/

    I use the labradar this way, and advise clients to use this way:
    - READ THE MANUAL. Read it a couple of times with the unit in hand and pay with the settings. Ideally with your favourite beer in hand, next to the fire.
    - Set up using the most sensitive trigger setting initially.
    - Choose a freq that avoids local wifi freqs if that's a thing where you shoot.
    - Use full power mode.
    - Ensure it is pointed exactly at target. For open flat ranges this is not so critical. For ranges with surrounds (movign branches etc) or baffles, tall grass etc the alignment becomes critical. Positioned up off the ground is best initially. Ok to use on a low tripod if there are no obstructions in front of it.
    - Position so that the muzzzle or end of the suppressor is just rearward of the unit ( to the side obviously).
    - If triggering is intermittent I tend to just skip to Doppler trigger mode.
    - We have remote triggers available also. This is a proprietary microphone on a cord. Just plug in and position next to the muzzle. haven't had this not work yet. It is called an "archery trigger", available on our website.

    In my experience with the latest firmware, if the inbuilt trigger isn't working, then I just skip to Doppler trigger mode and it works well.

    Cheers
    Joel

    I'd add a battery power pack/bank to the above...it lasts for a lot longer than the internal AA batteries. External mic is really required for consistent triggering with a suppressor. I place mine beside me level with the action...works well too (although might try in front off the tripod now as the bluetooth app is a lot easier to use). Once you know how to use it is a lot less fiddly than the V3 (sold to get the LabRadar).
