Looking To Get A Refractometer... Help

Hey All,

After being advised to get a refractometer from you guys, and not being soo confident in my swingarm hydrometer, I am in the market to get a refractometer...

Does anyone know if this one is any goog?


http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...e=STRK:MEWA:IT


My swingarm hydrometer is still reading 1.023 SG, but water has evaporated from the tank, so it SHOULD read higher SG...

Thanks,

-TheChad

Its not uncommon that your hydrometer can be way off either your to High or to low. Get you refractometer and see..

Not uncommon to see a 2-5 point difference.

There are 2 refractometer's I've found on Ebay... They both look different, but both has the same specs...

One is a bit more expensive, I don't mind spending the money IF it is justified. If I can save money, That makes me happy


Can anyone tell me if either of thease are better, or if they are equal?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1 - $34.99 Out The Door

OR

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1 - $46.99 Out The Door


Thanks for the help,

-TheChad

I see no reason to pay more if you dont' need to. They both do the same job. That's a good price on the one.
