If you want to go top end get a light with the advance cure feature built in. 
this allows you to do things like rev the engine to a particular rpm and by 
pushing a button or turning a knob read off the total advance at that point.  
This is very useful for checking both vacuum as well as total advance.  Also 
if you have an engine like the old TR***ph Sp****re like I had that only had 
a TDC mark and timed at something like 17 BTDC you can do it easily and 
accurately.  The version I have has a digital display that allow me to read 
RPM at the push of a button.
Warning these are big buck professional tools, you will probably spend 
between $100 -$300.  But boy do they make life easy.
