    If so, what'd you pay for it? Cheapest I've found is $120 on Amazon but I see more in the $3-400 range which makes me worry that the $120 one may be a piece of shit. I don't need new by any means, just something fairly sturdy, accurate and with some life left in it.

    I distrust their accuracy and precision.

    I have one that I picked up from a flea market for 80 dollars and was only 3 months old :wiggle:

    check those places, craigslist, etc. I distrust the electronic ones too

    just get a regular fucking scale man. put something on it that you know its exact weight and see where the margin is off. or spend over 100 dollars on the same shit idgaf

    If the determining factor of your progress is your scale, you are either very good or very bad.

    Myself. And no, the determining factor of my progress is not my scale, but the scale is one useful tool for measuring progress. Are standard bathroom scales accurate now? I am leery because the ones I have used always seem to vary by a few pounds, plus I just prefer the balance type.

    does it matter if it's off a bit?

    as long as you're measuring progress it should be good

    If the error is consistent then no, but how do I know?
