FX Pocket Chronograph
The Ultimate Guide to the FX Pocket Chronograph.
The new FX Pocket Chronograph is a wireless radar chronograph that is both portable and packed with features.
In the airgunning world, it is essential to maximize your rifle’s accuracy, and the chronograph is the key tool for the job. It allows you to know the velocity and power of your rifle.
This post will provide an all-encompassing rundown of the FX Pocket Chronograph, including why we think it’s an essential item, how it works, some placing guidelines, and specifications.
In the past, if you were looking for a chronograph, you unfortunately only had two options. You either purchase a costly and complicated unit that will provide you with most of what you need or go for the less expensive old model, which is not very portable, light sensitive, light-dependent, and frequently break.
Neither option is very appealing.
With this, the idea of the FX Pocket Chronograph emerged, and it was designed to offer sharpshooters a device that is both high in quality and that will not break the bank.
Not only is it a wireless radar chronograph packed with features, but it can also fit into the palm of your hand. It is perfect for the competitive or recreational shooter.
But don’t limit this just to the airgunning community: The FX Pocket Chronograph can be used for archery, CO2 rifle, pistols, airsoft, slingshot, paintball, etc.
The device can accurately track any projectile traveling under 1099 FPS.
What the device lacks in size, it more than makes up for in quality and features. When using your chronograph, you will receive instant feedback on projectile speed/power and advanced data management for your shot strings.
Communicating with your smartphone via Bluetooth is simply one of the most accessible devices you will ever use. Because it uses radar technology, it will work in any weather conditions, even in the middle of the night.
FX Pocket Chronograph Features
Features include showing you the feet per second your gun is at, storing an exportable shot string, and listing the muzzle energy of your rifle (in either foot, pounds, or joules).
You can also store profiles for different rifles, calibers, and pellets.
Future updates to the app are also expected so that the app’s versatility can grow and expand.

After the first time set up, it is as easy as placing the chronograph below the muzzle, opening the FX radar app on your phone, and firing away as the phone lists (or even calls out) your shot-string.
For the best results, here are some placing guidelines.
- Place the chronograph just under the front of the barrel housing or silencer. Approximately 3” off the ground and +- 2 inches from the end of the barrel. Always try and keep the chronograph and barrel on the same horizontal line.
- Always shoot straight over the top of the chronograph.
- Make sure the chronograph is aiming at a one-color clear service.
- If the results vary or do not register, move the chronograph and try again.
- You will gain the best results from consistent placement on the gun.
- Keep in mind that guns vary on placement, which means that some guns would prefer the chronograph right at the end of the barrel while others prefer it an inch or two backward.
- For the best results, experimentation is a must.
- Also, remember that every chronograph has a margin of error, and the instrument rarely displays the same result twice.
The FX Pocket Chronograph is an affordable, no-fuss, easy-to-operate ballistics information solution for your air rifle. It is the only chronograph that fits your pocket and, hands down, the easiest to use and set up.
