Bass Pro Shops Grip Master with Scale
Good Quality, Great Price
I have been using these for several months now. They have helped me land many large grass carp and catfish over 15 pounds. They are quality made, easy to use and you can't beat the price. They have a nice rotating handle just in case a fish get frisky with a good non slip grip. The scale is fairly accurate and the overall quality is great for the price.

As a 50+year bass fisherman, I have lipped many a bass, and on a few occassions, had to remove a hook from a finger due to this. With the new ultra sharp hooks, the chances of this happening is even greater. I have been using the Grip Master for several years now and it makes landing and removing hooks from a fish much safer. I like the built in scale, it is not as accurate as a digital scale, but gives a good estimate on the weight of a fish. When it comes to your safety, this product is worth it weight in gold.

Great Bang for the Buck
This gripper works great for all species of freshwater fish. I've used it to land musky, northern pike and bass. Like any mechanical device, lubricate the mechanism once in awhile for years of service.
I've no idea why others said it doesn't hold fish. It has never failed me....ever.

Its One Pound Off
Just got the scale in today and it is very well built, but the thing is i took a 5lb weight weighed it on a big scale and it said it was 5lbs. then i took it and weighed it with the Grip Master and the Grip Master said it was 4lb. and i tried with a few other weights and they were all 1lb off. its not bad for the price as long as you remember to add a pound to whatever the scale reads.
