Scale Recommendation? +PB701MHF Weight

Postby sarcazmo » Sun Jul 22, 2018 6:51 pm

Just wondering what scale you guys use to weigh all your stuff? My current food scale only reads 2 1/4 etc. Looking for something that goes at least to hundredth of an ounce.

I ordered a PB701MHF and just received it the other day. My picture for some reason is corrupted, but scale read 2 1/4 just like it did my two North Fork X rays.

May have to order a K2715 now and see how that weighs :-)

I use the AWS Scale Mate for a lot of my weighing. 500g x 0.1g.

For single guides and really small stuff, I use my reloading scale. RCBS 502 beam scale. It can weigh individual grains of gun powder. A TiSiC micro guide is not even a challenge for that scale.

I also use one of those digital pocket scales from Amazon. They're fairly accurate from my experience.

I have a K2 715 blank at home and a PB701MHF on the way. I can get you the weights if you like.

Great idea about the ammo scale! Always wanted to start reloading, this gives me an excuse to start :-)
Ogrich31 thanks for the offer, I'd love to see the weights you come up with so I can cross reference.

Working on uploading the pic, new weight of the point blank rod is 2.19. was hoping for the sub 2 oz as advertised but should still be nice and I know blanks vary.

The weights of my two blanks are:

PB701MHF = 65.34g / 2.305oz (listed as 1.94oz on PB's site)

K2 715 = 48.35g / 1.705oz (listed as 2.01oz on Phenix's site and 54g on the label)

Every blank is different, these are just the weights on the two blanks that I have.

Thank you!

I really like the feel of this point blank. Finished rod should be well under 4 oz

that is a pretty big discrepancy on published vs actual weights... hard to make up .35 oz!

That's what it measured on my scale. Thought it was off too.. But the K2 came in lighter than what others have reported as well. So I don't know anymore ](*,)
