    has anyone used one of these. They are 25 bucks at outdoor world Im wondering if they are accurate. It has a soil probe and seems like a great little tool to give you a good idea of what your soil is like.

    I have read muddstoppers previous post, on a older thread, on adjusting pH and it was very informative. I agree on not using a pH probe for your main source of information. What I would like to know is once you have taken measures to correct the pH using results from your soil analysis would a probe be good enough to see if what you did worked? Soil analysis from lesco cost ~$16 and I hate to keep paying that kind of money to see what I did works.
