    Let's see if the opinions on here are as varied as what I'm finding on the Internet. What are you using? Digital or something like the lock n' weigh? If you had to replace it right now, would you buy another?

    I use the Coffey 110 and it is very accurate, it weighs 2 ounces light and there is no reason to replace it.

    I do not currently have a scale, but am thinking of purchasing the coffey 110. I have seen them on ebay for a little cheaper than the website if you look around :wink:

    Well, based on the opinions here, as well as alot of very positive comments in the sponsor sections, I just ordered the 110. Slightly concerned with a few comments on moisture issues, but I'll just keep it in a case or drybag until needed. For the quality look of the scale, as well as the price, I think it would be hard to go wrong with it. Guess time will tell, but I'm feeling pretty good about it at the moment. Looking forward to putting it to the test :big_smile_2:

    I have a Rapala 50# scale and it seems to do alright. If I go to buy another though I will try out the Coffey!

    I ordered my 110 off of Ebay yesterday for $43.94 (including taxes/shipping). From a place called Bowhunters Superstore right here in PA. They had 5 left when I got mine. Best price that I was able to find.

    I wonder if everyone recomends a coffee scale just because they are a BOC sponcer? Im not saying they are bad but I didnt jump on the band wagon.I had a 50# berkley for years. So I bought another this past winter and love it its back lit has 2 displays on either side an 8 fish memory and has a large handle for hoisting big fish.Mine is a berkley tech 100# model.I checked it with a 35# dumb bell and its dead nuts

    I bought a coffey because all the guys on here said they were very accurate and durable,and all I can say is I also tested mine with olympic plates and it weighed two ounces light, they didn`t lie about the accuracy or durability.
