    Although a lot of different brands of meters are in use, I think that if you checked with all members, you'd find the majority use Kestrel.

    You can even see an ongoing poll here regarding meters. Link--> Which brand of wind meter, weather station do you use?

    What Kestrel should I get. Is the 2500 enough.

    If you don't want to use humidity you can get by with the 2500 but this has come up several times and it seems that the majority always go for the 3500. There's not a lot of difference in price between the two, depending on where you buy it. It's just a personal choice.
