    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.

    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.
