Rapala ProGuide Digital Fishing Scales
Cheap & Recommended
After reading around the reviews, I could not decide because not all scales work right out of the box. I haven't been able to use it, but until the moment where we were concerned with our suitcase weights before we went to airport. We weighted our suitcases, one was 37 and the other was 43. We went to airport, and this scale was accurate right on the nose! Caught a fish later, and weighted 2 lbs. Love the scale!

Save your money!
I thought it looked like the answer. Me and a friend both purchased one different times of the year. Both failed within a season. They keep reading different weights on the same fish. I put a 5 lb weight on it and it reads 2,3,5 etc all different. I had a 5 lb. bass on it and it read 2.lb.11 0z. see attached photo.I used a spring loaded one to verify the weight and was ready to toss the Rapala in the lake. Its a real waste of money according to both of us. I am really dissappointed in it. Stick with spring tension. Joe

i have used this scale for at least 3 years now. i replace the battery every spring and have no troubles with it. i also carry the berkely scale and they read a couple ounces close if not the same. i dont think u can go wrong for 30 bucks. if u dont replace the battery it'll read inacurate. bear in mind most the fish i weigh are bass under 5 lbs. with the ocassional catfish or pike slightly bigger, so i cannot vouch for it weighing heavier fish say over 10lbs.

simple digital scale.
its easy to use. not alot o money, and it lasts fror a long time. the only proble i have with is that when the fish swing it throws the measurement off but that is a simple thing to fix.
