At first I wasn't sure about the accuracy of the scale - but I just went with it and recently, while fishing and having an exceptional day fishing for smallmouth bass,used the scale weighing an assortment of very nice bass - what I realized is that the scale's calculation is spot on as long as you don't leave the fish hanging too long - the scale starts to change (not sure why) so I just took the first reading and left it at that - since I have been bass fishing for a long time, I can "guess-timate" the approximate weight so I'm comfortable with the reading of the scale.
The gripper is what I like best - by gripping the lower lip of bass - it immobilizes them long enough to get a reading -other scales rely on a hook and many times, the fish wiggles free from the hook so it takes longer to weigh them and possibly injuring them.
As long as you are satisfied with "approximate" weights - the scale works just fine - if you are in a tournament, thhe scale will give you a good idea where your at. If you want totally accurate weights, then you'll have to use a certifed scale.
For my purposes, it works great for live on the boat "bragging rights".
