Sun Super Tach Re-pop

I was looking around on e-Bay last night, and came across an ad for a Sun Super Tach. The 8000 RPM model (I forget the model number). Thing looked brand new. Saw another ad, same model tach, also looked brand new. Then another. Amazing. I thought someone had uncovered a lost warehouse! Not so. It seems the folks at Sun Pro have noticed that lots of us are using vintage Sun tachs in our retro-type street rods, and Sun Pro probably isn't selling hardly any of their own. So, they (they DO own the name . . . . ) are now re-popping the old style tachs. I don't think they're doing the older ones that required a transmitter, but the first generation following (voltage, polarity and cylinder count specific). The tachs look nice (at least on e-Bay), but I wonder if they have the same quality and durability of the great old Sun tachs. Anybody have any experience with these newer re-pops?

So, I googled and there's also an FZ88R. Repro of the FZ88. 0-8000 RPM. I thought the FZ-88 went to 8500 RPM, but Brain Fade is my new best friend. These look nice. Hope they work as well.

I have one in my car and its a POS
It worked well for a while and it is slow to register the correct RPMs. If I hold it at 3000 for 10 seconds it may read the correct.
