Bass Pro Shops Grip Master with Scale
not a good scale
I was looking for an inexpensive lip grip type scale. This was cheap, but it was horrible. Took it to Mexico-Lake Mateos. Our guide caught a monster, probably 12-13lb bass. We weighed it on this scale and it read somewhere around 6-7lbs. Not accurate at all, very difficult to read, and very cheaply built. Spend more money and get a better scale. Not even worth its cheap price.

This is a pretty good product for the price. It is fairly high quality and weighs fairly accurately, although it is not perfect. I have done just about everything that could break it to it, and it is still working just like it did when I got it.

Good for weighing fish
I just finished testing the scale by weighing my 2-1/2, 5, 10, & 25 Lb. Olympic weight plates and it is accurate. However the numbers are hard to read under the handle and Lbs. and Kilos are both listed and it's easy to get them confused - this may account for people in their reviews saying it isn't accurate as they are mistaking the Kilos reading for Lbs.
I haven't had a chance to see how the fish gripping feature works yet because we're snowed in now in Illinois but it seems solid and I'm sure that part will work fine. I do consider this a good buy and very functional.

This is a great grip too. I have used it to lip pike and bass and it has not given out. Had a pike going bezurk on it and it never gave out. I would suggest to use this once the fish is played out because it can damage the fishes jaw when the go crazy. I would not recomend holding up very large fish by just the grip but but supporting there belly and holding the horizontally. The scale is also accurate. The grip mechanism somehow came apart while transporting it but was able to fix it and it never happend since.
