The fact that the grip on the scale does not match the way the fingers hold the bow string and the fact that there is about a 1-1.5 inch difference between the grip on the scale and where the string is attached to the scale, means that inaccuracies in draw length are going to be induced, if an assistant is not used to judge how far back the string is actually drawn with the scale ( some over draw is going to be needed to measure at your true draw length ).

Comments about Hand Held Bow Scale:

I had some high hopes for this product. Unfortunately it has a 2" lead that throws off the actual draw length and weight. I tested it on weights from my gym, it reads them fine but when you draw it with your bow and a properly marked arrow it is 8-10lbs off. As soon as I opened the box the little tabs broke off it because it's cheaply made.

    Comments about Hand Held Bow Scale:

    I have just begun to build my own bows and purchased this product to check the draw weight of my bows. The measurement is accurate when compared to known draw weights on other bows. The only concern that I've had is that because your not drawing directly on the string it's hard to know when I reach my normal 28" draw length. This problem is easily solved by using a draw length scale, which is as easy as marking 28" on an old arrow.

        Comments about Hand Held Bow Scale:

        A well made, handy tool which allows the archer to check the poundage of their bow without the need of a wall mounted bow scale. This scale comes with instructions which are easy to follow. The one issue with this scale is that, due to it's construction, you have to draw the bow back around 2" further back from your anchor point to get an accurate poundage measurement.

          Comments about Hand Held Bow Scale:

          This is the first hand held scale I've used that doesn't pinch the string. Very accurate and easy to use. Also- the string doesn't slide around as you measure. A great scale that should last many years, even as many bows as I make.

            Comments about Hand Held Bow Scale:

            this product has filled a void in my archery toolbox. I have multiple bows that are unmarked for pull weight. This scale allows me to better judge which bows are better suited to which shooters in my family. My Grandaughter is just starting out and I am getting back into archery after many years away from it. The scale will help both of us develop our skills.

                I bought this to help determine draw weight while making bows and I have found it very useful. The sliding stop is nice so you can tell what the bow pulls at without having to watch the scale and pull at the same time. Simply pull back the bow and let it rest and read the draw weight.

                  This scale is an excellent purchase; very easy to use and read. The best part is that the scale measures at your actual draw length rather than at a predetermined length. Simply hook to your string, pull back to your anchor point, and then look at the scale. You can measure every bow in your house in a manner of minutes.

                    This product is wonderful. Its perfect for the archer/bowmaker that wants a dependable easy to work bow scale but cant afford the more expensive models. I am "old school", and pondered needlessly for years with bathroom scales or other types of scales. This is ready to go right out of the box. The instructions are easy to follow, and the sacle is easy to read. It saves me a great deal of time and effort while making bows. All I have to do is draw the bow, and I instantly know the draw weight. I highly recommend this product to anyone, whether you are a begginer or professional bowyer. This is a great product.
