rapala fish scales

Have any of you guy's have/had problems with these fish scales?? I have two and they both BITE not being even close to real weight. First one worked for a few the now every thing weighs 9 pounds and a few ounces. Just bought a new a couple weeks ago and this is pretty much the same thing. And yes tried new batteries same results . Of coarse threw the reciept away.

    We have a couple and haven't had any issues...once in a while we will weigh a new bag of sugar or flour by hanging it in a grocery bag just to check that it is still pretty close. Has been accurate on checks, but I usually just measure in about half pound increments, so it suits us.

    Test your scales and re-calibrate (if possible) using water.  1 gal.= 8.34 pounds (avg.).  Add or subtract amount of water to achieve different weight.

    Is that tap water or bottled?

    That depends on what your calibrating the scales for;  a BASS tournament or, bragging rights on FishUSA forums.  From what I gather your tap water is probably, by far, purer then that stuff purchased in them recycled plastic bottles.  Therefore your tap water would be a hair(red) lighter  10-4?
     
    You gettin bugged by that stupid Windows pop-up since you re-installed Windows 7?  I've gotten two phone calls, yeah phone calls, about why I dropped "10".  Could hardly tell what the dude was saying he had such an accent so, I didn't understand his answer when I asked him how the (explicit) did he get my phone number.  I did understand him saying "have a good day, sir... click".
