Try Wind Gauge, Gauges, Wind Meter, Meters, Portable, Handheld

Good luck!

He's right. If you search "Kestrel" you'll see that the 3500 is the favored unit.

Thanks for the input I was looking at the kestrel and skymate. I guess I will look harder at the kestrel.

Re: Buying Wind Meter Help

Good timing on your question. In the next week or two I am going to be offering wind meters for sale in the LRH Gear Shop at 2 distinctly different price points.

One is the no-frills Caldwell unit that offers NO pressure/altitude readings. The other is the Kestrel 3500 which seems to be the preferred one for those who actually use pressure/altitude readings taken from the field to make drop corrections.
