The laser tachs require a reflective sticker on the prop that screws with the balance, so I would not recommend those. The ones that look through the prop in daylight are the best. Inside the shop, I lower the lights and shine a strong flashlight beam through the prop at the sensor. AC lighting will give a false reading, and I've seen LED flashlights screw with them too. These inexpensive little tachs work great:

I use this one. Tracks up to a 9 blade prop and holds max RPM.

Only $10

I've got the two above and this Glo Bee tach...they all seem to register pretty close together. I've had the Glo Bee for a LONG time, and it's still ticking. It is sort of my favorite because of that I guess, and that it's also easy to hang on to with castored-up fingers!

I use a globee tach and it works great. I am sure the cheaper ones work just as well, but the Globee isn't that expensive. Andy
