Doesn't hold up
Wouldn't recommend this. My first one fell apart early in the first season. Fortunately, all the pieces fell in the boat. I sent it to Berkley (cost me shipping) and got a replacement. After less then a season, the second one suddenly started to give wrong weight. Poor quality. I liked the gripper for quickly and safely weighing fish, but it took time to turn on and zero, so had to land the fish and then weigh it. The unit just didn't hold up.

I have only had a short time but the scale works great. Easy to grip and jaws lock tight to fish's mouth. Scale works fine. No problems so far and time will tell how good a product this is.

Worked 3 times then nada
Bought this scale because I didn't want to rip a hole in the fish I release. Worked about three times then plain ole stopped. Does not hold larger fish either as the jaws are too lose and not tight enough. It was correct weight wise while it worked.

bought this for bass tournaments thought it would be faster to cull fish. but the scale is different every time u weigh the same fish. i tried holding it straight up and down and even changed the brand new battery thinking i got a bad battery. Really bad product for 50 dollars!!!!!!

Im looking for a grip which should be affordable and accurate, I am between this one and the grip master with scale, when I say accurate I don't mean capable of weigh ounces, I don't care if the mechanical one depends of my judgment but it should depend only of my judment. Thanks in advance
At first I was pleased with this product as it was accurate and easy to use, but i then noticed it started giving false readings and the grippers would not close. I would recomend something other than Berkley.
Yes... and no. But in Berkley's defense, there really is no perfectly "accurate" scale available at this price point. What I have found with fish scales is to buy what you can afford and what you feel is comfortable in your hand and of course what strokes your fancy to begin with... once that is taken care of, just calibrate it (if possible) and/or test it with known weights, and if it's off by a certain amount, then just make the decision whether it's enough to worry about or just account for that difference in your weight measurements. In tournament and/or DFG situations, this isn't a good idea in which case MAKE SURE you double check accuracy with a known weight source or ensure you have the ability to calibrate prior to weigh in.
Yes, but most of the time I just grab the fish by hand, turn it on, zero it out, attach it to the lip, then weigh. I feel like I will enjoy it in Canada with Pike, but for bass I wouldn't purchase this one again
