    Shepherd/Polaris SPDFM3 reviews

    Polaris Karat Flash Meter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value I have been using the Polaris Karat Meter for the past few weeks and have found it a great value. It has all the features that I needed in a simple meter. While there are some improvements that they could make to the software, none really get in my way in real use.
