Added Easton Handheld scale. How do I add this scale to the poll?

I got the Coffey Deer scale and it works great. I found one (220 pound deer scale) cheaper than I saw the 110 pound bow scale.

If money is tight go with a Coffey, if not the EASTON handheld is best hands down!

I've owned or used all but the Easton and Sunbeam scale. No comparison, the 7710 wins hands down in consistent accuracy and easy to use. The only thing is that it doesn't have a peak hold feature but the numbers are easy enough to read that its pretty easy to read the peak weight before the cams roll over.

I have a 100 lb that I paid like $45 for, but now I'd go for a digital:teeth:

Back up for the West Coast, turning in for tonight. Looking to try and order the scale by this weekend so all opinions are appreciated and valued. Better yet if you have one of these that you would like to get rid of at a discounted rate... :D :darkbeer:

I did not vote

Alot is personal preference.

But to me I would go with a hanging scale.

Why?

Because if you build a drawboard in the future that would be the scale to use with it.
