There's a million of them. I need one that is made well, dependable and accurate. But I don't need bells and whistles that, say, a Connect Scale has. Just one that will weigh my fish for eons. What do you use? TIA.


If you can't find em wind em.

Mango Spot bought on e-bay $10.74 free shipping so far so good. 110# scale hand held... Reweighted my fish on these scales after tournament weight in and had the exact weight as the tournament scale. They have a tare weight. I am happy with them. Accuracy 0-22 is .01 and 22 to 110 is .02.

That is one I am looking at. Has better reviews than the tournament scale and I like that it will keep track of your weights.

Ive used bogas for years. And still do on big fish. But started using this Rapala scale this year to get more exact weights on unders in tournaments on Fork. Love the scale. You can also lock in 5 weights and delete and add weights to know what your 5 fish bag is.

Had a few different lesser quality ones and got tired of them so spent a little more and got the Brecknell and love it. Very accurate.

I always carry two scales in my boat. Seems like the batteries have a tendency to die on you at the worst time. Fifteen pound Boga Grips are very accurate if you are are not in a tournament and don't need to know down to the .01 of a pound. The most accurate scale on the market is the Cull-m-Rite made right here in Dallas Texas.

For the more budget minded angler, these work well too. I checked mine against a 10# bag of sugar and they were off One Ounce.
