i don't know about the best, or cheapest or whatever. but, a lot of guys use the kestrels here. i bought the 3500 model, it works great, and came highly recommended.

He's right. If you search "Kestrel" you'll see that the 3500 is the favored unit.

Thanks for the input I was looking at the kestrel and skymate. I guess I will look harder at the kestrel.

Good timing on your question. In the next week or two I am going to be offering wind meters for sale in the LRH Gear Shop at 2 distinctly different price points.

One is the no-frills Caldwell unit that offers NO pressure/altitude readings. The other is the Kestrel 3500 which seems to be the preferred one for those who actually use pressure/altitude readings taken from the field to make drop corrections.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
