    I have looked all over the net with no luck.

    Any of you know a retailer that I can order a new Gempro 250 scale?

    MyWeigh, the company that manufactures the Gempro 250, has discontinued the 250 model. The 300 is the newest model and what they are calling the replacement for the 250. If you want a 250 you'll probably have to look on the used market unless someone still has them in stock.

    I was afraid of that, I looked on MyWeigh's website but it didn't show that that model was discontinued.

    I have a 250 now and love it. Was hoping to purchase a new one for a buddy.

    Here is email from MyWeigh I just received.


    We have been experiencing issues with the GemPro line and our team is actively working on finding a comparable replacement option. If you were to purchase a GemPro scale you may end up having to go through a refund process as we do not have another replacement available at this time. Once one is available it will be indicated on our site.



    Looks like I will have to find a used one.

    Whats your recommendations for other reliable scales that wont break the bank that are .02gn?

    Same here. They are very touchy to use with a lot of drift. Seems like there's no
    in-between scales available. You go from gem pro for 150.00 to the Fx-120 costing way more.

    The one I have now works great as long as your in a quite setting.

    I've noticed it being effected by any noise or electrical devices running near it.

    I had a cordless drill battery charging 25ft away the other day while reloading and it was going crazy. Unplugged the charger and it was back to normal.

    I would really like to find an in-between scale between it and the high dollar FX-120

    Same here. Very quiet, long warm up and it works fine. ALL my lighting is LED strips. Used to have the shop light florescent, but they are all gone now.

    I leave mine on I never turn it off. Calibrate it before I use it.

    I am looking real hard at the A&D EJ 123. Old Will Knott Scales has them right now for $326 and free shipping.

    Lol.... I started with a 505, went with a gempro 300, a few others, then to a Scott Parker tuned redding and just bought an FX120 with all the attachments and I still find myself doubting the FX120 and going back to old faithful ( Scott Parker) tuned scales. I guess I'm just old school.

    I use the gem pro but check often with redding beam scale. It does seem that if I leave the gem pro on, it works better.:confused:

    Thanks for all your input! I have purchased a used one from here on the board.

    I would like to keep this conversation going about some other scales to consider.

    I called my weight wanting to have my 250 worked on. They sent me 150.oo MO. Would have done total if it's had receipt.
    Buy once, cry once ...

    Looks like my gem pro 250 but can't be sure.
    Says it's out of stock. Think you can find it cheaper though.

    Just today I went to load some 338RUM and my gempro has developed a drift.

    Power went off yesterday for a while. Hoping it will settle after warming up.
