Wind Meter Question

Ok, before everyone tells me to just do a search... I already did one, a bunch on 'em and I still can't find the answer I need. I need a wind meter that gauges wind speed, temp and barometric pressure for the best price possible. The only one that I have found is the Kestrel 2500 and up for $150+. I have looked at the Skymate also and the one I found that they make is around $200. Who else should I look at? I also don't mind buying used if anybody has anything.
Thanks in advance for the help!

I use a Cabelas Brunton ADC Sherpa.

It seems just fine and was about 80 bucks, I think....

Re: Wind Meter Question

I got my kestral 3500 a while back from ambient weather (Kestrel Wind Meters Factory Authorized Store ) for 169.00 bucks. I think you might find what your looking for on their site. They were a pleasure to deal with and I recieved my stuff within a couple of days.

Check out The 'Skywatch Explorer 4' .. whilst I got mine overseas it was less than half the price of the Kestrel....

I'm pretty sure that I got my Kestrel 3500 through Amazon, for around $165, not too long ago. They will show you several sellers. Or you can check Pricegrabbers.com ..
