The Fish Scale

Berkley Fish Scale

Old style Berkley fish scale

Here is a Berkley 50 pound capacity electronic fish scale.  It was purchased at Walmart for about $20.  It is no longer sold in the local Walmart stores.   It appears that it has been superceded by a more capable device for a couple dollars more.  The significance is that they require slightly different mountings on the BeeWeigh.

The updated version of the Berkley fish scale

The updated version of the Berkley fish scale has a protrustion of the back of the case just below the handle.  This requires modification of the way the scale mounts to the BeeWeigh.  This is the model scale that is currently sold in the local Walmart stores.

Another version of fish scale is produced by Mustad.  These scales are available for purchase on-line through Walmart and Amazon.  The Mustad scale has an audible signal which sounds when the scale reading has stabalized.  This is very helpful when making measurements.  The Mustad scale case is very similar to the original Berkley scale and can use the same type mounting on the BeeWeigh.
