T-Stop has a few of them. They really like them. I messed with them once. They are tiny, link up really quick and have super far range.

Hey Rob. Try your best to test one out first. The one I used had connectivity issues - pairing the transmitter and receiver seemed to be anything but an exact science. Once paired, great, but before that it was totally hit and miss. It could've just been that particular unit, but just in case, best to test before buying.

I've recently purchased one and am very happy.. Fast to setup and calibrate, light and the ac's really like the feel of the controller .. My only gripe is the hand unit drains the 9v battery quite fast..

Its looking like I'll have to rent one before buying just for the reason that I can't seem to find one to buy . . . . . . anyone else around the rest of the planet know of any place that has them in stock ?
Thanks for the heads up Afton regarding the pairing
And Justin, how quick is quick when you say it drains the 9 volts fast?

I found some occasional
issues with pairing around my teradek bolt, had to make sure the heden was powered on and paired first..
I was going through 2x 9v each day.. Compared to other systems it was slightly on the power hungry side .. I blame that on the blutooth protocol

Std 9V alkaline has limited duration time. Please try rechargeable 9V Li-Ion or Li-Po cells. Typically last for at least 1-2 shooting days.
