Champro 4-Dial Optic Yellow Steel Umpire Indicator - 3/2/2 Count
Tools in Action: Champro 4-Dial Optic Yellow Steel Umpire Indicator - 3/2/2 Count
See Champro's 4-Dial Metal Umpire Indicator in use.
Just switched to this from a plastic model. Love the weight and the fact that it is so thin. Big advantage is that the numbers are not recessed but right at the surface. Much easier to see during night games. Sorry I waited so long.
Very nice. Maybe mine is an exception, but it seems to spin a little easy for my liking. No real tactile click.
Great 3/2/2 indicator. The cookie really pops and the wheels are easy to spin.

This is by far the best indicator I've used. Sturdy and easy to read, they've held up longer than any plastic indicators I've owned. I like the 2 strike/3 ball count especially. The dials also don't move as easy as other which helps in not loosing the counts.

I've purchased many indicators trying to find the right one for me. I thought I only wanted to choose from options that recorded balls first, but this count order is easy for me to keep straight as it shows the count the same way I'd see it if my partner signaled the count to me. The part I like the most about this indicator is how thin it is compared to the plastic indicators. It's lightweight and is now the only indicator I will use. My only complaint would be that the numbers on the dials could "center" better, but they are easily read so it's not a problem for me. Overall, this is the BEST indicator on the market.
While it’s a nice indicator, the bottom wheel is not as tight as the others. Not sure if it’s a defect or meant to be loose. The colors are nice and vibrant, feels good in the hand except for the loose end. May have to go back to my trusty black plastic versions.
This is my go-to indicator. The 2 strikes and 3 balls count is very nice. The optic yellow dials and numbers are easy to read during the day and late evenings.
Light weight, very visible, and fits nicely in the hand! Highly recommend.
Best umpire indicator on the market. Looks good and very functional. Order a couple new ones every year.
Winston Salem, NC
Had a Markwort indicator for over a decade and it finally broke. Thought this one would be similar. The metal is a lot thinner and doesn’t feel as well made as the Markwort but it will do. The neon dials are easier to see. Always easy shopping and fast shipping with Ump-Attire.com.
Nice weight and size. The only negative is that the numbers wear off.

Positives - Neon dials, easier to see. Durable metal construction. Looks good. Negatives - Smaller than I realized which makes it slightly harder to manipulate with large hands. I’m in the desert southwest and metal actually gets pretty hot. Also, in hot and humid conditions, the metal is super slippery in your wet hands. I frequently drop it due to size and surface. If you have large hands or umpire in a hot climate, this is not a great option. I applied grip tape to it to minimize the problem.
So much more durable than the plastic models. The optic yellow dials certainly help during night games as well.
Nice weight. The bright dials help at night.
Love the weight and green dials.
I had this for a few years and is the only umpire indicator I use. Metal is definitely the best. This is durable and works in all types of weather. I like how thin it is and not like plastic that is bulky.
One of the better umpire indicators on the market. Fits nicely in my hand. After notching each dial where my fingers lay, I hardly need to look at it. I have 3 of them so I am never at a loss when I am ready to take the field as plate or base umpire.

This is a quality umpire indicator. The segmented clicks feel and sound solid making it easy to operate without looking. Over time, dirt from our hands causes friction and has occasionally rubbed off some of the black ink on a number. That's about the time I buy a new one. I work about 200 games per season and I like a new one every 18 months or so.
St. Charles, MO
Totally a great indicator. Easy to read at a quick glance. It doesn't indicate ball 4 or strike 3, which is great. It doesn't break or fill with dirt when dropped. My favorite!
Great visabiltiy and tactility, never a doubt if I properly counted a pitch or out. Feels solid in the hand, lightweight yet sturdy. BUT, I have had to order at least 1, sometimes more over the course of a season. The ball/strike dials come loose or pop out after a bit of use. Also, doesn't help that sometimes I forget to take it out of my shirt pocket before changing, leading to it being dropped. All in all, still my favorite umpire indicator that I've used, and would 100% recommend it. Perfect if it was a bit more durable.
New Fairfield, CT
The other reviews are dead on. Sturdy, good hand feel, excellent visibility. It doesn't feel like the cheap plastic indicator that we've all tossed out. This is a solid umpire indicator.
Like this umpire indicator much better than the plastic ones I've been using for years!!
Indicator is small, durable and light weight. Awesome under light and can see everything easy! Really like this umpire indicator.
This indicator is durable, comfortable, and simple. I like that strike 3, ball 4, and out 3 are not included, which allows umpires to avoid excess clicking. Although the steel reflects sunlight during some day games, I highly recommend this indicator.
Love this indicator! I should have purchased it a long time ago. Fits great in my hand. Not bulky at all.
Nice feel and smooth operation. I much prefer the 3 ball/2 strike setup and easy to view colored dials.
Great Product. Smooth mechanics. Love that it only has 2 strikes and 3 balls.
Kansas City, KS
Favorite indicator ever! Runs smooth. Awesome visibility with the neon color.
I love this indicator. I've used it for a couple years now and wont use anything else. Best on the market. This indicator feels very nice in the hand and mechanical workings are smooth.
Good contrasting colors. Easy to read.
Works as described. Easy to see, light weight. Great value. A must have.

I've used this style indicator for several years and always get 2 day delivery from Ump-Attire.com!
Lake Elsinore, CA
This is a great umpire indicator. My favorite and easy to read at night. I notched the dials at zero and it impressed my fellow umpires so much that they asked me to do it to their indicators as well.
Yep, it works just as advertised.
Mount Vernon, NY
The clicker is lightweight and the dials are extremely smooth when compared to other clickers I have used in the past. The numbers on the indicator are also very visible even on fields that are poorly lit. I'd rate it a 10 out of 10.
This umpire indicator is totally awesome, it's going to be nice to be able to keep track of innings as well as ball and strikes and outs. Easier to see during night games.
Lehigh Acres, FL
LOVE this indicator! Light weight! Compact! The neon pops for night games.. A must have in you equipment bag!
Columbia Station, OH
I just bought my second umpire indicator. I love the first, and the rating would have been 5 stars, but I have noted that the numerals are starting to wear off on the original, and it's only been a season or so in use. Still, it's easy to read, feels good in hand, and has clear stops on the reels.
Excellent indicator. Easy to see in dim lighting.
Awesome product! It's easy to read, easy to rotate, yet locks into every number! Great for when the lights come on! I had the plastic one and couldn't see it well at night, upgraded to this one and hate I didn't buy this one first!
This indicator works great and is so easy to see at night when the lights are dim. Less clicking too with 1 less ball, 1 less strike and 1 less out on the clicker. Worth the extra couple of dollars to buy this one!
Solid umpire indicator. Love the 2/3/2 format. No complaints at all!
This indicator is umpire heaven: effortless to move, but still firm clicks, and well made!
This umpire indicator is very visible and has easy turn dials with grooves so your fingers don't slip off the dials. The only minor flaw is when the indicator is moved around in your hand, the sun will reflect off of the casing and shine in your eyes. The optic yellow and 3 balls, 2 strikes, and 2 outs is what I like best about this indicator.
The Product delivered exactly what I wanted. High visibility (the key issue) better than I expected. The bonus was the 2 strike 3 ball count that made it easier to use. Would highly recommend for the price and their service and delivery process was excellent. I have ordered other products from this site and equally satisfied.

I love the bright color and 3-2 count. Fits in my hand easily and can see the numbers right away. Good job!
Staten Island, NY
I love that it goes to 3 balls / 2 strikes / 2 outs and that the innings dial has a 0 since I use it for runs. The yellow dials make the numbers easy to read. Also love that it's a traditional Strike then Ball configuration, unlike all the new indicators coming out. My only complaint is the shiny silver mirror surface will often blind me from sun reflection when I glance at it. We umpires are blind enough -- we don't need any help! Why can't the metal be painted black instead, and maybe even have a textured surface? I shouldn't have to apply sandpaper to the product. For this reason I prefer the black plastic indicators but keep these around as a backup in case they break.
The best clicker I have found because it is 3-2 and bright yellow numbers. First one I have seen. My partners are jealous. There are probably lots out there but this is the first I've see. Don't drop it everyone can see it on the ground.
Palm Harbor, FL
Product came with a few sharp edges that needed filing down, but this is an excellent indicator. We do a lot of night games and the white numbers would sometimes white-out with intense lighting. The yellow background helps with those issues. Love the 3-2 indicators with outs and innings. Thanks for a great product.
Palm Coast, Fl
Great price on this indicator!!!!
San Jose, CA
Solid. Feels good in the hand. Zeros out after 2 strikes, 3 balls, 2 outs (never realized what a nuisance 3 strike, 4 ball, 3 out counter was).
I've been using these for years and they are the best indicators I can find...
San Diego , CA
I purchased this indicator to try out the yellow/green background for evening games - we will see how it works in the coming few months. This indicator is light weight and functions well. I would expect it to last several long seasons of use.
West Hollywood, CA
I'm still using my old indicators and haven't put these to use yet. They look good, were delivered promptly, and I can't imagine that I'll be disappointed with them.
Seems to be a solid indicator. The neon wheels with black numbers make it easy to see...let the season begin so I can check this out in action:)
New Port Richey, FL
I like the feel of this umpire indicator, it's not too heavy.
These are hands down the best umpire indicators out there. Light, durable, easy to read, solid click. Every now and again I darken the numbers with a perm. marker. Last for years, unless you lose them as I do.
Love my optic steel umpire indicator. Have had many umpires inquire where I got it. Fast delivery when I order from Ump-Attire.com all the time.
Some of the wheels are hard to turn and will take some getting used to not having 4 balls, 3 strikes & 3 outs.
Metal is definitely better than plastic but I am not sure if the counter will last more than one season. It does feel cheaply made.
A gear bargain. Lightweight, but very solid. I will buy another one on my next order as a backup. My only minor complaint, I wish it could be disassembled to allow for cleaning. I dropped mine and it took a while to get all the fine sand out.
I just bought 2 more. I like the fact it has the yellow wheels. Some of the fields I go to have horrible lighting. Also they are light weight. I have hated the plastic ones because they are too thick and these are nice and thin.
The best I have used! All indicators should zero out after 2 strikes and 3 balls!
Apollo Beach, FL
Best I've used in 18 years. Strong and reliable. I love the 2 strike return to zero as well as 3 balls return to zero. Less chances of forgetting to zero out. I bought 2 because I hate using anything else.
