What kinda scales do you all use......And did ya get them
I use the 50lb digital Berkley. Waterproof, auto shut-off, permenent battery. Had it for about 8 or 9 years now with no problems. It also calibrates itself everytime you turn it on so you get a measurment to the 1/10th of a pound. No cheatin with this scale.
Ive got this scale as well and its great. Mine is newer so it will hold a tared weight in memory (ie a bag, etc) each use. Better though is it will hold 10 fish weights in memory and give you average weight of them.
If you are fishing a small river (for flatheads) a 50lb. digital is good. If a big river a larger spring scale is better.
i just got a 120 pound digital scale off of ebay. it weighs in pounds, kilos and ounces. it also has a temp guage and a 40 inch tape. it is a very nice scale but it does not have a brand name on it anywhere. i had to get it from some guy in australia.
Sadly, I've never had to weigh a 50# fish (yet), but when I tested my berkley scale with a 50# weight, the hook straightened out. I then went into the shop and came out with my big game spring scale (300#). It reads in 5# increments, so you have to look pretty close to figure on 1#, etc. but I promise the hook won't straighten on it. Don't know if I'll ever max it out, but it'll do until I get something better.
I'm pretty sure I considered buying that same scale.
I just got a berkly sping scale that is also a grabber with a 24" handle, but I havn't got to try it out yet.
I just bought a 100# spring scale from BPS. Have'nt used it yet. Payed $20.00 for it. My digital does'nt seem to work too well if it gets wet!:cursing:
I use that Rapala wideloc and I think that it goes to 75 lbs. I love it, its all stainless and has a spring type scale. And the jaws are kinda like a bogagrip type thing and good for handling fish and for pictures. Hope this helps. Good luck in your search!
i really like mine. i have a berkley 50lb digital scale. you can pick one up at walmart for around $20, i think its more like $17 but i could be mistaken. It's worked just great for me though.
I bought a 100# spring scale from cabelas. It also has this little piece that slides under the indicater so you dont have to struggle to look at it while holding the fish up you just hold it up let the fish sit then put it down look at the scale and the little piece of plastic sticks at the last known wieght. Works great and measures in 1# increments.
