    Excactly, I sold my SW4 and replaced it with a Kestrel 4000. Really wish I hadnt! The SW 4 is a fraction of a kestrel and does all the stuff you need and would ever want for shooting/long range purposes etc.

    I still believe that my Kestrel wind meter reads wind incorrectly or inaccurately, despite fitting a new impella. I always seem to be underestimating wind speeds and when I compared the Kestrel and SW together before I sold the SW, the Kestel was alway reading lower wind speeds then the SW. For example, the SW would read a speed of say 15mph and the Kestrel would read 13 ish. At the time I thought it must be the SW that is reading,wrong as the Kestrel is 5x the price.

    If I could turn back time I would not have bothered witht the Kestrel and would have stuck with the 60 Skywatch 4.


    Hoe this has been some help?
