It would be superb, but I've had someone before saying he was scoring over 15000, and the scream from his rotor was the same as other 15k scores. When I saw a video it wasn't even more than about 11000. So I obviously have my reservations.
I am very sceptical to the results I see, but the most obviouse fault in the tech used for the counter is getting double counting. Then I opened the counter I saw a small reed relay - and those counts magnetic signals.
Another strange thing is that it is very difficult to reset the max-count and highest ever. Have to push the button many times before anything happens.
All the other setting have no problem with the clear function.
That is strange with the Max-Count setting, because a single press should clear the score, even when the rotor is spinning. (Very annoying with it happens in the middle of an attempt to get a really high count, and I'm dreading doing it on my 10,000,000 revs in a day challenge which is coming up soon).

I think all counters have done this last thing.
It was an error in the counter
After playing with high numbers for a few days the counter gradually reduced to about 50% to 60% of the high numbers - so I fear that it has been a prell on the reed relay so it gave the double number of pulses much of the time. At least I have a picture of one of the last scores with my left hand - over 18k.
Today my left is running at about 9000 as the best - about the half of what it was earlier in the week
a friend of mine left the pwoerball in the bath while he was shawering.. and i think the steam made a temporal damage on the counter.
He was scoring about 17k xD.
he let the powerball to dry off and the counter was back to normal.
Counters can develop faults. I'll soon post up a video of one of my counters with such a fault.
Wow, we may have a new world champion on our hands. And if not, I WANT YOUR COUNTER!
It seems as the internal clock in the counter is bad
I just had the first try for a 90 sec strength and ended at over 38k - but it took me more than 3 min - so the clock must be wrong! How can I get a replacement? Having some training in electronics I have conducted a visual inspection of the electronics and it is no visible problem.
I suggest you email firstname.lastname@example.org, stating what's on the rubber grip, giving your details and linking to this thread...see if you can get a new counter.
