Not worth the cost as it gives different readings on same fish. We weighted fish from 2# to 6#' on several fish 3 and 4 times and never got the same weight on the same fish. The reading varied 2 or 3 oz. everytime. I would not reccomend for tourement fishing.
I love this product. So much fun especially for the really toothy Lingcod. We used it a lot and tried it against other weighing methods and found it to be very accurate. Off by less then 1/4 of a pound in a salmon tournament. Solid design and holds up well in the salt water. Good price and easy to use, feels solid.
I used this for precisely one fishing trip. Somehow, I managed to misplace it as I was loading up my vehicle. Boy, I was pissed. What I can say about it is that it's fairly large and heavy owing to the additional scale readout built into the handle. I did not have the opportunity to validate the accuracy of the scale. And instead of purchasing the same unit as a replacement, I opted to buy a smaller, lighter, cheaper lip gripper and a separate Berkeley digital scale. I have rated it 4 stars because it performs as expected but was a bit too large and heavy for my purposes.
