    Best type of torque wrench for checking SC slip?

    I found an old 2008 thread talking about checking SC slip, and it recommended a dial-type wrench. Is that still the consensus for 2013? I like the digital torque wrenches, but I'm planning on leaving this wrench out at my cabin where I keep my skis, so it won't be used for anything else, and I want to get one that will do the job right.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Ah - thanks, Jerry. I've got a set of real nice dial type ones made by USAG, but I like to keep those in the auto tool box here at the house.

    Do you find the dial types more reliable/accurate than the digitals?

    Oh, also - what ft lb range will I need to check slip?

    With a dial type you can actually read at the point the clutch breaks loose and also see the reading while the clutch is slipping. A good digital wrench can do the same thing but I much prefer a dial type.

    the max you will ever set a seadoo supercharger clutch is 20-21 ft lbs

    Here's what I have been using for years... and like Jerry said get a accurate slip reading with no guessing
    Here's mine pricy but this is a company who is been around for years. Mine is over twenty five years old and still works like it has when it was new. To boot American made.
