    Mustad MT017 Mechanical Grade Scale For Salt & Fresh Water!

    I decided to retire my digital scale for several reasons. It reads only in kg w/no pound increments. Harder to get a more accurate reading. The main reason is in the bright sunlight i'm having a hard time reading the small digital lcd display. At the last Izuo Brothers product show this wasn't packed at closing so they said i could keep it.

    Stats-
    SS spring & hook.
    50lb/22kg max reading.
    Anodized aluminum rust resistant body.
    Sliding rubber weight marker.
    Easy grip rubberized metal handle.
    MSRP-$24.99

    Hard to find now as most scales are digital & compact. I still prefer the spring versions.

    These cost more (Buy Once, Cry Once), but i've had mine forever. i've tested the accuracy with an Old School "Baby's Medical Scale" and it's close enough for me! also, it is calibratable!

    you can find tons of "used ones" online for a very reasonable price!

    Looks just like the scale I have, mine is branded Rapala tho, other than that they look identical. I mostly use it for setting drag on the 2 speeds.
