No, the flexiforce sensor cannot measure more than 100 lbs of force. I seem to remember pressure sensors adapted for weight (force), but a quick look didn't turn up any. You may want to consider salvaging a sensor from a digital scale.

Try looking up load cells... I use a few at work in the 100lb range. I don't know what the pricetag is like.

And depending on your needs, a simple mechanical interface may do the job. Think of a lever in reverse....
