Accurate scale under $100?

Recommended Posts

Every so often a topic rolls around where you REALLY learn something new and the idea of using an inexpensive luggage scale just never occurred to me. 

 

It makes the cost of being a member here seem more reasonable . . . WAIT a minute . . . it is a free site making this sort of information, these nuggets of shared ideas/wisdom priceless!

 

I'm going to buy a luggage scale. I have no excuses left. Ha!

 

A big thanks for this idea, too, the better choices described for the dedicated fish scales.

Here's the 1 year follow up, which includes the original report, which is extremely detailed. 

 

I used one of these for like two years with no issues.  Ironically I broke it trying to weigh a huge suitcase.  I replaced it with another $5 scale and it’s still chugging along.  I do add a strip of packing tape over the battery compartment to add a little water resistance and use conductive grease on the battery terminals.

I don’t need no stinkin scale to tell me my 4 pounder in actually 2.8. 

 

But I have the $40 rapala and it works just fine.  

hahahahahhaaa ... seriously before I got a scale every fish over 3.5 lbs I would add a pound to the weight.

So if I thought it was a 6 pounder, it would weigh 5.

Once I started subtracting a pound from what I thought it weighed, I was pretty accurate.

 

Now I have the scale to smack me into reality
