Ok I know the Thermopen is the standard around here but there are times my curiosity can get the better of me. I ran across the Maverick Pen at Amazon and liked the reviews and looks of it. The backlit screen seems to be a nice feature. Price is a bit less than a Thermopen but almost not worth the mention. Since I have had great luck with both my ET 73s I thought it is worth a consideration. Pic below and comments welcome!
