A new mode?
How about adding a mode on the counter, that would be a peak informer. I mean, it would not come down as the RPM drops, but stay at the highest point of the last attempt, resetable by the clear button, of course.

Hi - and thank you for your query. If you press the 'fcn' button and reveal the little lightening bolt symbol (middle mode) you'll find that it will hold the highest score you have achieved since resetting the counter with the 'clr' button. Each time you exceed this score, it will over write the [previous] score in the units memory. Hope this helps. Regards Rory
Well.. something make me septic..
Could it be possible to disable the overwriting?
I mean, look, you can make 10'000 rpm, you show the ball to one of your friends, a body-builder one , he could make maby 13000, and you'll never see if you have more than your last score, 10'000, exept if you can do better than 13'000...
Do you understand me?
...pressing the [on/clr] button while in high score mode will reset the score for the next run..
You don't understand my question I'm afraid. I mean, what if you do not want to lose your record but still see the peak you got with the last run? The price of being able to see your recent efforts should not cost you your alltime record. You know, not all use this for fun+games with your friends, I just try to beat myself
Yes, I was thinking about the same thing as Jaako.
Or maby, simply having more than one highscore memory... So that you could keep a highscore, and a temporary score.
Yes a resettable high score counter would be a great addition to an all-time high score counter. Think of it like the odometer in your car. One for total mileage and one for current trip mileage. I don't want to erase my all-time high score but I would like to know how close I got to it during a practice run.
Am I missing something here?
My counter keeps the high score until I break it. It still shows me how close I get to breaking it. I know I broke my record when it flashes, otherwise, it does not flash and show me the top speed I acheved that try. It EVENTUALLY flips back to the current, much higher, high score.
I recently picked up a second hand 250Hz Powerball with what must be an older counter. It only shows the highest RPM, not the current RPM, (in the lighning bolt mode I mean).
However, my new Original Neon stores the highest RPM, but shows the current RPM for any given run, then, should the high score not be beaten, re-displays the stored high score once the gyro stops.
Perhaps you just need a newer counter.
