I have been using this one for over 2 years, works just fine for me and comes with a calibration weight. Under $17 as well.

With the legalization of Cannabis in many States and in Canada the availability of small personal and accurate weight scales at decent prices is a buyers market.

I doubt that you need to spend a lot of money on a arrow scale.

Don't spend more than $20. A good one that goes to 500 grains is like $14.

When you buy a scale that measures in grains, you pay more money for the lower it will go, not higher. If you are only expecting it to measure to a grain or a 1/2 grain. Any scale will do. If you expect 1/10th grain accurately and consistently, you'll need to spend more and buy a reputable brand.

what would be the highest one you get. 1000gn or the 500 ok? I looking for a scale that pretty accurate and I would spend up to 30to 40. think those with the calibration are better?

Go with the 1000 gr when i was making arrows for my Equinox they were over 500 gr.
I use a Franklin Arsenal reloading scale and it works great and was not very expensive.

100 grams is 1536 grains, roughly. You must have looked at a different one.

Whatever you get, make sure it comes with a calibration weight.
