    Anyone have a recomendation for a digital scale? It need not be the pocket versions because it would only be used at home.

    Assuming that you are only planning to measure your darts, get a scale that is as wide as the longest barrel you will want to weigh. If you want to weigh darts with shafts and flights, make sure the scale is wide enough to accomidate that. If you are weighing kilos, you can use a metric bathroom scale. Wink

    I got mine vial mail order and there were hundreds to choose from. I think the technology in making a digital scale is quite simple these days so you will not have a problem regardless of what you choose. Mine is small enough to fit in my pocket and measures to 1/100th or a gram. That seemed good enough for darts.

    I'm even thinking about going to the post office to see if they would weigh some darts for me. I bought them long ago and don't remember what they weigh. I figure it's worth while to have a scale here because as I get older I'll probably forget the weight again. Very Happy

    There are lots of scales on EBay.I got mine from "MeadowPines".
    http://stores.ebay.com/MEADOWPINES
    or you can search for "digital pocket scale" on ebay. +/-0.1 gram is sufficient for darts, but you can find some at a reasonable price at +/1 0.05 gram or better too. i paid $25 for mine and was a bargain at that price.

    This may sound silly, but if you're tight with the butcher at the market/butcher shop you can get them weighed there. That's assuming that to the 1/100 is good enough. I've done it with a largish bass before. I'm sure the health inspector would'nt have liked it though.

    Later,
    Jeff

    For Home... I would suggest the Triton II (2-New Model)

    We use them here at the shop. The first one- I bought for $60 and lasted almost 4 years before acting goofy. Now -it's down to Twenty Bucks!

    The new one has the red backlight.

    Hope this helps!

    Scale arrived today and works perfect. The GT's I was currious about weigh in at 23.5g with tip. These are 12 years old or more and have the smooth body without the groves. It lookes like the new GT's have groves cut to get them down to 23g, I think I'll hang on to these.

    I know the Etekcity kitchen scales are great. It is also the best seller on Amazon.
