I've had a Manley 50lb scale for 25 years, still as accurate today as it was back then. Occasional fresh water rinse, shot of WD40 when I remember to. Great for weighing fish and setting drags.

Boga!

I haven't heard of any sent off to IGFA that didn't come back as certified IGFA scales.

They're great!

I bought a digital luggage scale for less than $20 and it is dead on. It is used for weighing fish for personal purposes, nothing else.

The way you do that is you place a bucket on the scale, Tare the weight back to zero and place the fish on the bucket, I do this with all my platform scales. And if you have 3 or 4 fish like snapper or grouper you can place them in the bucket head first and weigh them all together.
