    Any recommendations on what scale you would use to weigh arrows and broad-heads?

    Lol. Glad to hear it's measuring grains now and not grams anymore.

    I bought Smart Weigh High Precision Digital Scale 50 x 0.001g off Amazon for $45 measures to .01 grams but only goes up to 770 grams which I probably will never find a use to go higher but being a lower max weight allows it to be higher precision. Comes with a case to store it in and everything

    From what I read on a lot of the scales you have to convert the scale reading, which is in grams, to grains. Especially the jewelry type scales. I don't understand the metric system any way shape or form.
