I no longer sell that one because of a similar quality unit for less money and has a better case.

Weather Hawk SM-28 Skymaster

Currently using the SKyMate. Biggest drawback is reading it if the sun is out. Even with the decent size LED screen, readings are tough to make out.

Clint, I am surprised to hear of your experience. I just took mine outside in the very bright direct sun. It reads very easily.

I wonder if your battery is low, or you have a defective unit. Please let me know what you find out.

Re: Which brand of wind meter, weather station do you use?

I assembled my own portable weather station using a wireless home system made by La Crosse. I went this route so that I could get both wind speed and direction, as well as pressure and temperature.

I mounted all the sensors on a long broom handle that I secure to a steel fence post with a hose clamp. It takes longer to set up, but I can locate it 6-10' in the air up to 25 yds from my shooting position. I get more accurate wind measurements that way.

I use a pole with a flag to mark where I put the caller and wind speed.

Re: Which brand of wind meter, weather station do you use?

I have been eyeing up the Kestrel 3500 for $200! Trying to find the best price. I believe it will best suit my needs. I have also been looking at the skywatch Xplorer 4! Any input would be greatly appreciated!
