Good Value

I like this scale. It works well. It is easy to use. I had used one similar to this in the past so I was surprised by the negative ratings. I would recommend this scale over other types of scales.

I should have listened

Other places also reviewed this product low...for the same reason the other posters posted. It isn't accurate. "But," I told myself "it's professional looking, it's a name brand product of a fairly well trusted retailer, it's *heavy* and solid feeling!" Yeah no dice. I bought my compound bow at Cabela's and the guys at the archery counter set it all up for me. (Great job as always, incidentally). I asked them to set it at 45lbs and they said they did. It *feels* like 45lbs to me when I pull it. But my Cabela's bow scale says 37lbs. Repeatedly. Just for kicks I used my luggage scale (poor man's bow scale) to test it. That one read 45lbs. The only downside is I've long since gotten rid of the receipt and packaging for this. (I was building an archery tuning kit for home use and adding stuff to it.) So I don't think I can return it. I might call and ask though. Hopefully the posters who read this will listen better than I did. :)

Cabelas bow scale

Very poor quality. I believe that I could guess the draw weight more accurately. It's worthless really since it doesn't work. It's unusual for cabelas to sell something this poor.

Does what it is supposed to do for me.

I read the other negative (1star) reviews, and was somewhat surprised. I have used this scale for a few years now, if you know how to use a scale, it has always been very accurate for me. I check it every year against calibration weights (string through the weights, hanging on the scale), and I have cross checked it against two other digital scales and two other spring scales on a draw board many times. I trust this scale as much or more as I do any of my other scales. It's easy to mess up with this type of scale. If you pull too hard against the backwall, it will read however hard you want to pull. If you draw too fast, the slider won't move fully to the peak draw weight. A nice slow, even draw speed, holding the scale limply between your fingers (tie a piece of cord around the head and your wrist so you don't lose it from your hand), and stopping as soon as the cam breaks into the valley is how you have to pull to make it work. Again, I'm surprised to see the negative reviews. No, it's not the greatest scale in the world, so I gave it 3 stars for "average". It does exactly what it is supposed to do.
