When I received the scale it was pointing at 46lbs. There is no adjustment to zero it so all I can do is add 4lbs to whatever I'm weighing.
I weighed my bags bags with the scale before flying to Canada, it was just as accurate as the airline scales on items over 30 lbs. I never checked the accuracy below 30lbs.
Overall you get what you pay for.

Didn't work for me….
not even close to being accurate..I caught a few 4lb bass and it kept reading under a pound..I used my other scale and a friends and they both said 4lbs..
..I will be returning it.

I bought this because i didnt have a scale and i didnt have much money to spend. All i can say is that you get what you pay for. I got a 3 ib weight, hung it from the scale, and got 1.5 ibs. It would be great if there were a way to calibrate it, but sadly, there isnt. I dont recommend buying this product. Just spend the extra $ and get a berkley or rapala.

The best way, that I know of, to weigh the fish is to pop the hook through the mouth. Many anglers make the mistake when weighing fish or putting them on the stringer of putting it through the gills. Weighing it through the mouth puts less stress on the fish and has a better chance of survival when released. The hole that you make through the mouth will eventually close shut.
