draw weight bow scale
« on: March 28, 2023, 04:19:08 pm »
What type of scale are most of you using when determining your draw weight on your bows? Looking to use it while drawing on the wall mount. I have a deer scale and bathroom scale not the most accurate.

I use an inexpensive deer scale. Iíve compared it with my digital fish scale and itís close enough for all practical purposes. As in less than 1# difference.

I have the same as Pat , it came from 3 rivers, I like it because it has a hold on it, you can pull the bow to the length you want and don't have to hold it there to look at the weight, when you let off it will hold the poundage you was at.  :)

I've got a couple luggage scales I got from amazon. Both were inexpensive and have a peak hold feature that I've found useful working on compound bows for others. They're designed such that it's easy to place them inline with my drawboard pull rope.
