    what kind of scales does everyone use?

    i bought a spring style (50lb) model from bait pro(lol) shops.

    we used it one day and found it to be off. weighed one fish 14 lbs and one 20 lbs. the 20 lb one was twice the size of the 14 lber.

    got home and checked it against a high quality bath scale, our anchor weighs 22 lbs, on the bps spring scale it weighed 15...

    needless to say i'm looking for another scale...

    a 50 lb one first, then hopefully one day i'll need a 100 lb scale!!

    I use the 220lb scales from Coffey. They are very accurate, Rugged, and the price aint bad either. One feature I really like is they use regular AAA batteries, same as my head light. I've had mine for 15 months now and the low battery light came on this week, of course I was at the lake trying to weigh a fish, but we keep AAA's on hand for the headlights so it was no problem.
