The Xtools Grip N Weigh is designed with the serious angler in mind. This 3-in-1 tool floats and can be used as a fish gripper and a digital scale.
Great scale! I had tried one before in a bass tournament and liked the ability to track the weight of the individual fish and have a current total, takes away some guess work but still use a balance beam also on the fish of similar weight.
I find the scale difficult to initialize, and I don't believe it is accurate at low weights. I weighted a 5 lb bag of flour, and it was close, but I've landed a couple of fish that weighed under when weighed on a known accurate line scale...would be nice if they added a small tape measure, say 36"
This scale doesn't work! I've caught my share of fish, but I cannot get the scale to work properly. I bring it up to the house and I can get it to operate, but on the boat forget- a-bout-it.
I stopped using this scale shortly after I bought it. Every time I went out fishing I had to read the instructions to get it cleared and setup. Then I found on many occasions to be inaccurate. Not good when fishing tourney's.
