Best BASS weighing scale

10 posts in this topic

Kind of an odd boring topic but maybe we'll all get valuable inputs here. We all have our mini tourneys and club days. We all need reliable and accurate weighing scales digital or otherwise. There's a multitude of choices and some go a bit on the pricey side.

What do you use? Do you wish you hadn't purchased that? If so, in favor of what instead?

I ussually go with the judge. lol, I have used the berkely and liked it, but make sure it doesn't get wet.

The berkley culling scale works really well and is very accurate. It will keep track of you total weight as well.

I'm not usually a berkly fan, but I have the berkley scale, the one that remember weights and colors up to 10 fish i think. I have gone to the scale and been within an ounce more than once.. and I have put fish in my livewell and weighed them hours later to have them within a 1/4 oz.. For $30 you cant go wrong... In my opinon.

Are you interested in weighing in the boat or at shore for the official weigh in. In the boat I am a Berkley fan, accurate enough for me and the price is right. Have friends that swear by the X-Tool system but that is a little spendy for not much better results. On shore weigh in, our league uses a digital scale that was designed for weighing packages, it is water proof. Not sure where it was bought.

For in the boat to me I am just trying to get an idea which fish weighs more than the other so I do use a berkley scale and it does the trick. For a weigh in on shore I think the most important thing is that you all always use the same scale. So if one guy weighs a fish that is 4.5 pounds and the scale says 4 pounds thats OK as long as the next guys 5 pounder weighs 4.5 pounds. Does that make sense?

Balance beam is a must if you want to judge which fish is bigger of the two. A lot quicker as well.

zep-to be honest, I dont even know.. They are a very good company. My reasons are probably very selfish. Most if not all of my Sponsors are in compitition with Pure Fishing(berk). So , again, My reasons are selfish.. They are a very good company.

    • I've done a few things to the old camper in the last few weeks.   First I replaced the old crank jack with a new electric jack.     Then the cooling unit on my fridge went out so I ended up just replacing the 6 cu. ft 2 way fridge with a 9.9 cu. ft. residential electric only fridge.   Next order of business is new tires. Blew one out on the way to Zumbro Falls this weekend    Pretty soon everything on this camper will be brand new! 
    •   Well I never!!!    Caught one that nice!
    •   Del be fightin' with himself again. He likes that. 
    • I now boys fight Nice!!
    • Its a great house. Yep its heavy, yep the cover is bulky compared to a single layer, yep I'd buy it again. You can always pull down a zipper or 2 (front and back doors) if you get hot. For what its worth I switched from a Clam Yukon TC (normal sides with a insulated top) both are a similar size. On below zero days in the clam I would have to use a big buddy. In the otter I use a buddy and rarely turn it on high.
    • Ya, right. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA   From a car audio site....MOTORHEADS talkin'...   FlyinMiata9,
      A shorter antenna mast captures a smaller portion of a radio broadcast station's travelling radio wave. That results in reduced radio reception capability. The reduced radio reception capability may never be noticed if only listening to nearby radio broadcast stations in the city. 

      There's no overall magic of one short antenna over another. There are some that include a signal amplifier. They can at times enhance more distant radio receptions, but usually degrade other radio reception situations, often those where there are multiple strong radio signals in the reception area.

      The overall disadvantages of antenna amplifiers for car antennas tend to be far more predominant than advantages. There are some radio signal amplifiers for car antennas that automatically switch "off" when operated in a strong signal area. That can assist clearly listening to the nearby strong radio stations, but reduce the prospect of listening to any some distance away.

      There's always a prospect of the antenna you installed being defective, or not installed properly well mounted to the car's fender for a good electrical radio reception ground plane. Check to make sure the in-line Motorola connector set is fully pushed-in inserted together. 

      A simple way to test the antenna line and system is to tune in a weak AM radio station in the daytime and then grab hold of the antenna mast to detect stronger and louder reception of that weak AM radio station. Your conductive body mass adds some to the short antenna's reception capability. There may also be an initial "thump" sound as the car's radio makes an automatic adjustment of its radio reception sensitivity. If there's no dramatic change in weak AM radio reception, look for an open or shorted electrical problem. Best bet is a full length proper antenna.
    • The replacements most likely have tuning components built in.  And it isn't too big a deal anyway if you have decent signal strength.
