Shimano Fish Scale Does Not Lie

Scale While one of my buddies was picking through the mounds of miscellaneous stuff around my office, he picked up a Shimano 20-pound aluminum scale and asked, “Is this thing really accurate?” 

I had no idea, so we grabbed another item that was lying around, a Milwaukee drill, and weighed it on my postal scale. It read 3 pounds, 15 ounces. Then we calibrated the Shimano and weighed the drill with that. The Shimano needle stopped at 4 pounds. That’s pretty darn close. Impressive. $18 at http://tackledirect.com/shimano-spring-scales.html
