    I'm looking for a good scale that will weigh fish over 50 pounds. I have a berkely digital 50 and it works fine when I have batteries in it but in my hunt for something over 50 I'm goin to need something that can weigh it and is reliable and could take a beating if I dropped it down some rocks. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Jump up to the next size Berkley makes. The Berkley Tec100. I'm more them pleased with mine with almost 2 years of abuse and quite a few decent sized fish over 50 lbs caught so far.

    Bottom line, if this one would take a crap, I'd buy the exact same thing again in a heartbeat. It has served me well, so far. Only my opinion.

    The Berkley 100 pd scale has treated me good so far. The two sided display is nice also. Seems to be very high quality

    does the tec 100 have a good back light for night time? i like the idea of having the display on both sides probably going to get one

    <and is reliable and could take a beating if I dropped it down some rocks.>

    Good advice on the TEC 100, but I don't think ANY digital scale is designed to be dropped on rocks! :wink::crazy::eek:oooh::wink: My pard dropped my Berkley digital in the bottom of the boat and it broke. Digital/electric ain't designed for abuse.

    I found one in the "Sportsmans Guide" magazine (also online) that I am going to order. Its called a Moultre Digital game scale...weighs in lbs/kgs up to 330 lbs. I have I have not maxed my 50 lb digital scale but was looking for something in case I stumble onto moby dick. I have harvested some bucks over 200 lbs so I thought I might get some year round use out of it. I will let you know how good it is... for $50 it is worth a try.
