The boca's are really really nice, just make sure you tie a big float or cork to them.

I have a Boca with the scale and really like it. I am always afraid I will drop it overboard but as yet I haven't. The heft and feel of it are all a sign of quaility. I,m pretty sure its 100% Stainless Steel. I just bought a Boca grip holder made of star board and mounted it on my boat and now I have a place to keep it handy all the time. It is sorta nice to know what your fish wieghts.
My humble opinion
PS. The picture below is me using the boca holding my 55inch redfish I don't know what it wieghed because the scale bottomed out

Boga for sure. They are expensive, but worth every penny. I have one that must be going on 10 years old. Scale still very accurate. Not a spec of corrosion on it and it stays in the boat.

I found the lipper 26 on ebay today new for 39 including shipping. It looks like it was an older model because the leather sheath doesnt look as nice as the ones on other sites. The tool looked identical though. And on another site I found this http://www.evolutionproductsinc.com/products.php?cat=31 42.00 plus shipping. I dont knwo if im supposed to be posting prices or not but wow! Check out this review http://www.tackletour.com/reviewlippertoolslipper.html anyway mines on the way. Ill probably put a big float on it when I get it. I do like the Boga but big price diff.

Boga is the best tool out there that is currently manufactured. I do have a couple of "Lip-Lok" tools which are as well made and function as well as the Boga, but since they are no longer manufactured I can't recommend them. Boga is the best hands down. No other tools on currently on the market come close.

The Rapala ones don't open as wide as others.

My Boga is older than my son in 8th grade.

Default get the right one

You get what you pay for is what you always hear. I have to agree especially when it comes to getting the right lip gripper. There are a lot of "take offs" on the market. For me I believe the Boga grip is the best constructed one on the market. There are other cheaper ones but its a matter of what you want to pay and what kind of performance you want. I think its a matter of "buying right". Get the right stuff and you will enjoy years of use and performance as well. Capt Clay
