Re: Which Kestrel?

Good luck with your Kestrel. I've never had a single problem with mine.

Just remember though, don't have your hand wrapped around it if you're going to check humidity.

This is from a previous post.

You probably already know this but, you have to be careful how you hold a Kestrel when checking humidity. There is a hole on the back and if your hand is near it you can make it vary quite a bit.

And the screen display is more difficult to read than the 3500. The 4500 display 3 lines of data therefore the letters are smaller and harder to read than is the 3500 which displays 1 line of info in larger lettering
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot
