    I looked at one on amazon but it had terrible reviews. I'd just like to know the draw weight on my Z7.

    Thanks,

    Don't you have an archery shop or dealer around there that sells & tunes bows??

    They would do it for free, or not very much at least.

    Samsite Luggage scale.

    I'm serious, there is no real difference between bow scales and luggage scales. I use an analog one, but there are many digital models that work fine.

    You can do it with a bathroom scale if you weigh someone holding the bow.

    Then have them hold it overhead and you draw it.

    Simple math between the two weights after that.

    lol rc

    I make bows as a hobby and I use a vet's spring scale intended to weight a calf to measure the draw weight. Mine goes up to 200 pounds and can be calibrated. You can find ones around 100 pounds.
