Tire gauge question

Anyone know a good brand or place (online/offline) I can buy an accurate motorcycle tire gauge from? Similar to the one that SRC John had at the track?

My 2 cents?
Buy a good quality pencil gauge at O'Reillys, etc.
Make sure it's accurate to 1-2%.
Expect to spend $5-6.00.

any good ones that aren't a pencil gauge? I have fumbly hands and pencil gauges are hard for me to check pressure with (i have one). I really liked the one that SRC had for people to use. Anyone know where I might get one similar to that?

I can get you one.
They're a little over $20.00.
Give me a shout Tuesday.

The one that he uses which is fluid filled? I have decided to save up and buy a professional quality gauge. My last track day I used four different gauges and got four different readings.....
The cheapos are great for the first day but i think any sort of bump or dropping it will make it inaccurate

I've had mine for 2 years, and it has bounced around in my balancing box all of that time. It is still within .5 lbs of my test gauge. You can always bring your gauge by my trailer and test your gauge against my test gauge.
