    I just got a Pnematically dampened wind probe. It shows the "push factor". Not a reading in MPH, but a relative indicator. The idea being (@ least as I understand it), Observe and select the most commonly seen positions for both the flag and probe. Zero the scope for those 2 simutanously occuring conditions. This is when to shoot. If things go sideways (like in pic #2), wait for your flag & probe to come back to where you have zeroed for. The brave & the bold can try to figure where to hold off for every different noted condition...good luck w/ that one! :eek:

    Does anyone else use a wind probe, and if so, how do you use it?


    Here is one view w/ a windflag

    And this one just a minute later!

    That's an interesting gizmo.

    I could see it being useful even when you can't shoot, if you were to put it near some trees or brush and study how they bend at different positions on the probe.
