What is the best water testing kit?

What is the best water testing kit? I have been using test strips, but the test strip results don't match the results I get from the water testing results from the pool center/store. Are there home test kits that give actual numbers rather than just colors? Maybe it's my age and I am going a little color blind.

Thanks for your help.

The TF-100, from TFTestKits.net, is a better test kit than most pool stores use. In the TF-100, only the PH test requires color matching.
