Cheap components, inaccurate
on July 10, 2014
Some of the other complaints are valid: it's a simple thermometer in a metal case. The ring is quite flimsy.
My biggest problem, however, is the inaccuracy! This thing reads 10 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than it actually is. I was fishing the Mississippi River with ice floating on the surface and it was reading 46 degrees. Absolutely not the case.
Its saving grace keeping it from a 1 star review is that it's reliably wrong. Put another way, it always says the water is 10 degrees warmer than actual, so I can do the math and figure it out.
Overall, I wouldn't recommend. For the price, there are better thermometers for the job out there.
