Our only niggle with that version was the strength of the karabiner which attached the scales to your sling. It simply wasn't strong enough.
Thankfully there are no such problems with these new 120lb scales - the metal link is much meatier and stronger.
The screen is equally impressive, remaining fog and condensation-free in all weathers and offering a pleasing blue illumination.
The dual-sided nature of these scales might be seen as a bit of a gimmick, but it genuinely does enable the sociable angler to view the weight of his or her fish at the same time as an expectant crowd.
The one-piece T-bar handle feels durable and the battery life is decent.
For under £45 you can't ask for more.
