The timer works particularily well as a shot timer, as it has a strong magnet that keeps it parked securely enough right on top of the E-61 grouphead. A nice feature is that it works as both a countup or a countdown timer, the latter providing an alarm when it reaches 0. It also recalls the last countdown time used at the moment you silence the alarm, ready to go again for timing the next shot.
Though I have it set to 25 seconds, I stop my pulls at around 10-17 seconds (after first drop) for my usual ristrettos, for a total draw of roughly 0.4-0.8 ounces.
