Easton Bow Scales

That's a lot of money to see if your bow really does weigh in at what the bowyers said it did.

I have a lot of bows and I justified this because I need to know exactly what #age I am holding in order to make sure my arrows are right. Ok let me try again, I justified this purchase because I needed to prove to a mate that his bow wasn't 75# !! Errr... one more try, I justified this because I make the odd bow and need to know what weight it is, also my workshop scales are just too big to carry around.

Oh look I might as well come clean, I couldn't justify the cost of this at the time and I still can't, it's a hundred and fifty quid for Gods sake !! I know I could have spent it better but now that I have it it really does come in useful, at the very least it settles a lot of arguments.

It's small and simple to use, just reset it , use the hook to draw your bow and it captures the peak weight. If like me you are nerdy you can find out what your bows draw at every inch up to you full draw. It can weigh up to 100#

At this price it had better be accurate, and it is. The only niggle I have is that if I leave the batteries in they are always discharged by the time I need to use it, this is because the button is not protected and if you have it in a bag or box invariably something will be pressing on the button as you move about, so I have taken them out and have them jangling about in the nice little drawstring bag it comes with.  Certainly there are other scales but this, being digital is small, easy to use and accurate.

Verdict

Features & Design

Digital bow scales - nuff said !!

Performance

Accurate to .1 of a #, I can't argue with the performance

Value for Money

It can't possibly be value for money can it ? either buy some cheap fishing scales or go to a shop, better yet find a mug that spent £150 on these and ask to borrow them

Overall

Depite it being an excellent bit of kit and doing very well exactly what it is supposed to do it's just too expensive to make any kind of sense, unless you run an archery business and need to measure bows.. That's it, that's how I justified it !!!!!
