The early one's had a plastic loop on the top which could break.... nearly dropped a 40+ with that.... There must have been issues as their now steel loops. Had a set for a few years now and never had a problem with them.

Temp gauge is a bonus! Battery has never been replaced.

Perhaps I just got a duff set.

I have a set of these, purchased about 12 months ago as I wanted a small travelling set for short stints and stalking. Initially, all was well, they are accurate (against my Reuben Heaton digis), easy to use and take up little space. Nice folding mechanism for the weighing hooks too.

All was well, until they got wet, which in their line of work is pretty unavoidable! Whether they are not a good seal or perhaps some other reason, the screen refused to work. I changed batteries (they take the same 9v rectangular batteries as Delkims) and they worked okay but would not switch off.

Have tried drying them out, but have the same problem. They won't switch off, and stealing the batteries off my Delks every time just to weigh a fish, before removing the battery again gets a little frustrating.

I could not recommend these scales. When they work, their great. When they don't my Delkims don't either.

This is a purely 1st impression type of review.

I decided i wanted a set of digital scales that will weigh a decent sized fish, as i have a France trip coming up and at the moment my Reuben Heaton Flyweights only go up to 40lb.
The biggest fish in the lake i am headed too is around 60lb.
So i was looking at a set of scales, that were not too expensive, compact and would weigh up to a reasonable amount.
I have just recieved a set of Korum Digital scales, they are a dark green rubberized coated scale comes complete with a PP3 9 volt battery and a neoprene case. They weigh up to 85lbs or 40KG.

They have a single on/ off push button, which is slightly recessed, so its hard to knock and accidently switch on, though if you do or it goes on in your bag, they switch off automatically after 30-45 seconds to save battery.

They have a switch on the side to go between lbs and ounces or Kilogrammes and grammes.
Having weighed an object in them, they read in lbs and oz, not decimals like some digital scales do.

To zero you just attatch a weigh sling before switching on the scale, then switch on, the scale is then zeroed to your sling, take off sling put in fish, hook up and weigh away. They then record weight which stays on the screen once it has settled for a good 30-45 seconds. The scales are very small and compact, take up no more space than my Flyweights, and all for 28.99 delivered
