Apparently there are different types of radar guns for different types of speed measuring activities. The ones used by law enforcement looking for speeders are not necessarily the same ones used by baseball scouts looking for the next pitching phenom. So why deal with a trunk full of different radar guns when you can replace them all with a single unit?
The Any Sport Radar Gun can be easily switched between different modes at the push of a button, and is accurate to within 1/10th of 1 MPH. It takes just 10 milliseconds after the trigger is pressed for the speed reading to show up on the LCD display, and it can hold up to 5 different readings in its integrated memory. The Any Sport Radar Gun also tops out around 600 MPH, so it just might have a chance of measuring the speed of a ball coming out of a cannon, or what many people refer to as my pitching arm. But I’ve already reduced too many radar guns to smoldering piles of circuits, so I’m skeptical.
You can get it from Hammacher Schlemmer for $799.95, and at that price it’s only going to appeal to real speed enthusiasts.
