I have both the IRS and the Hudy ones, the hudy ones are more precise, remind me sunday if you want to borrow them.

I been using Xray's but I think that one is either miss or hit, look like IRS can give me better idea , after that balls I will be tweaking with MIP.

has anyone else had their high dollar front one way bearing fall apart? Unfortunatley you have to buy the entire oneway tube for 45 bucks and can't find the oneway bearing to just replace it. Has anyone else had this happen?

the IRS has a distinctive dead spot on center, I found that I needed 7g more on one side when I compared between what was balanced between the hudy and the IRS. The IRS are easier to use, but less accurate. Is getting within 7g enough, yeah for mortals and fairtrace, some people buy 4 digital scales to get it to the .1th
