Re: Wind Meter, best overall buy??

The Brunton Sherpa works Very well, however it does not deliver a humidity reading (not that that matters ~ but it is part of the equation in most if not all software packages). The Kestrel's 3500 and 4000 do. I have had one of those for approximately four years and it has worked exceptionally well. I once tested a Speed Master just like the one Ian has. It worked just fine, however (at the time) it only functioned in metric units. If I were to rate them, the Kestrelís would rate 1st, then the Brunton Sherpa followed by the Speedmaster.

Big Bore-- i've got the Speedtech Weather Watch Pro, and it's the slickest little gizmo-- pop-up anemometer is neat! I used it for 2 intermediate range coyotes this yr, and it worked just fine. 1 was a 300 yd, coyote with a .17 Mach IV handgun in an avg. 10 mph from 3 o'clock, and a 530 yd. shot with a Savage Striker with same wind conditions.
