I am looking for a new scale for the boat I was looking at this one on tackle warehouse. https://www.tacklewarehouse.com/Rapala_Touch_Screen_Tournament_Scale_15lb/descpage-RTDS.html
Does anyone use this if so how well do you like it? I like the idea of storing so you have an idea of total weight.

I thought that might be a problem. I can see where it would be sensitive, especially to moisture. Something like the one linked above or Connect scale would be neat for fishing jackpots with buddies, but simplicity and accuracy are more appealing to me. I use a Brecknell and that joker is very accurate.

I've had that scale for 2 years. I love it. Works great and is very accurate. Within an ounce of my Pro Tournament Scale model 357
