Looking into second one seems a bit more tough - Thanks for the reply!

I use a berkley digital, pretty close and easy to use, batteries last a couple of yrs. with light use.

I had 3 Brecknell's fail on me and they have terrible customer service, always said I got them wet. The dealer I bought them from had to replace them his self. Sure won't buy anymore of them.


Never test the depth of the water with both feet.

The one i have has a hook to put in the gills. Will that harm a fish you are going to release back into the water?

Luck will beat skill any time you have enough of it!

AccuCul or Rapala touch screen has always worked for me.

Not if you're careful when you slide it into their gills. I replaced the metal hook with a small plastic clip like this.

I think I bought mine at Academy for $3 but it is an offbrand. Take the metal hook off the scale by opening the O-ring and replace with this.

This is also a good scale for the money. Reads in pounds & oz or pounds & hundredths.
