      A:

      Physical weight of the item is less than 1/2#.
      It will measure bow weights between the range of 15 - 90#.

      A:

      I only tried it out on traditional recurves and longbows.It probably would not work any better on compounds. I do not like the results I got and I cannot callibrate this scale.

      A:

      I do not think that this scale would work as well for a compound. With the let off on the compound the hold weight would not be different than the weight of the bow. With a traditional bow the weight increases the farther you pull it back so where ever the scale is is the true weight of the bow.

  • Q:

    I notice that each bow scale has a metal hook for the string. Wouldn't this weigh the bow lighter than a real draw which has a three fingered anchor; this creates a line of 2 inches (not a 1/8" hook), give or take? Point being, increased string angle to the same draw length distance requires more bow bend. Am I splitting hairs here or are we just supposed to assume the scale folks thought of this?

      A:

      Yes, almost any scale would be off slightly, but it would only be a difference of a few ounces, not pounds. The difference is negligible.

  • Q:

    how accurate is this scale ? i have a 45# bow at 28 inches and this scale reads about 5 pounds less. i have shot my bow many, many thousands of times.

      A:

      We have never had any problems with this scale's accuracy. I do not know what kind of bow it is, but it is not uncommon for them to lose a few pounds over time. It is also possible that it did not start out at exactly 45#. Archery manufacturers are given a 2# lee way on bow weights. A 45# bow could be anywhere from 43# to 47#.

      Hi Frank. Bows eventually lose poundage over the years, and I am guessing that that's what happened to your bow.

  • Q:

    i feel stupid asking this but which side of the marker do you read when you let down your draw? there is a narrow end and a wide end. the narrow end reads a heavier number and the wide end reads a lighter weight.

      A:

      I am not sure how old your Hand Held Bow Scale is, but I pulled one off of the shelf and in the middle of the indicator is a thin line that sticks up. That is where you should be taking your measurements. One of our techs recommends putting a dot of white on the line so it is easier to see.

      Be sure you are pulling to your draw length. In this, your fingers (wrapped around the T-handle) will be further back than your anchor point, as that is where you need to get the string hook too.
