A buddy has it and loves it.
Iíve seen it but not used it yet.
Looks robust.
Itís waterproof and has a really decent range and accuracy for a fish scale.

Heck, I know youíre tired of cheap scales crapping out.  But this one is cheap enough to try one more.  Not much to lose.

Keep me posted and good luck.

I would not expect anything labled rapala to last a while and do a good job, but my rapala has help up for id say 5+ years now, and everytime i check its accuracy, its dead nuts.
havnt used mine in the salt, so i cannot say if it would hold up in salt (if that matters) only weighs up to 50lbs so if you are fishing trophy striped bass or somthing this wont work on every fish (so we hope  :P)

That's what I have and it matched a certified scale I have exactly. Used it a lot to weigh fish on my fish farm.

had a berkley scale for 20yrs.  cant say that i tested it for accuracy though. thats not something i need to be really accurate ya know.  it held many many cats over 40# and a  couple over 50, which its not rated for.  (tops out at 50#)

Check out the scales they use in Major League Fishing. Think they're like $90. Has a clamp to hold fish rather than a hook.
