    Does anyone have any experience or "reviews" on the Kestrel 3500 wind meters?

    Thinking of getting one, but not sure yet.

    Thanks.gun)

    I've got a little experience with them. In terms of wind meters they do everything you need and not a whole bunch of stuff you don't . For long range hunting I just don't see where the 4000 series modles are worth the extra money. I have used a 3500 for several years now and couldn't be happier, accurate and very durable. You should be able to find them for well under $200.00.

    I bought the 3500 on Shawn's Recommendation in the Video. So far I like it, works great with the Nightforce Exbal PDA program.

    I guess I'll be getting one, Kestrel has them for $189 w/free s&h. Is this cheap or does someone know a better place to buy.

    Thanks.gun)

    moontrail.com has them for $169 with free shipping.

    I also saw an ebay auction for $150 BIN, shipping was about $5.
