Coffey marketing makes one for about $30-$35 I think it is sold by both Cabelas and bass pro. I have one and it is great.

I use Durascale
they are very accurate for Digital scales plus they dont take up a lot of room in the archery box

The only bad thing about the Coffey scale that I saw was that it is only accurate to +/- 1.5 grains. Lancaster has one that sells for 50 that goes to 771 grains and is accurate to .15 grains.

Go with a Coffey. Couple different models and inexpensive.

cabelas makes a nice one with a calibration set that can double as a reloading scale. I think it is made by US scale.

Yes 1.5 is pretty accurate , but I like something that goes a lot more than that so for $10 more I would get the one that is a lot more accurate. That is +/- 1.5 grains so you could end up with a difference of 3 grains . Not nearly accurate enough in my opinion where you can spend and extra ten and get one that will be a WHOLE lot better.

a scale accurate to 3 grains is a piece of junkreally!!!!!!!!!!!!
Your bow would get concerned over a 3 grain difference???....get serious man
poor shooting form, a crooked arrow,or wind will effect an arrow 100 times more than 3 grains ever could
why waste 10$???? buy your kid/grandkid/little johny across the streeta new toy with that money...or give the wife a rose... or something nice like that.
