Speedtech vs. Kestrel??

I am trying to make a decision on a windmeter and I need some consumer (read that as LRH member) input. Which one is the best bang for the buck? Which one is the most durable (I am rough on equipment)? Thanks.

No experience w/the Speedtech but have a Kestrel and love it. It is the one that does pressure as well as temp and windspeed.

Also have the Kestrel, but sscoyote (hunting buddy) has the speedtech and he really likes it. Both of us is pleased with the product we use-It's a tie.

I get along great with the Brunton. Have also used Kestral and liked it as much, maybee a wee bit more. Never used the other one.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

Speedtech's portability is it's appeal. Right on your wrist, and has served me well so far.
