Default Fish Scales

Hey guys I'm looking for a reliable scale to use to get a close to accurate weight on all the king salmon that I dont catch. It seems like I buy one of the cheapo spring type scales every spring and buy coho season they are already junk.
Which scale do you guys use and where did you get it?

Boga Grip - The scale in these are certifiable by IGFA. Three models 15#, 30# and they are making a 60# again

Ditto on the Boga Grip, IGFA can usually get them to certify. If you want a certifiable digital scale you'll need to bite the bullet and get a Salter. They are one of the very few digital scales that will pass certification..... I use both, the Boga to handle a fish and then hook the Salter to the Boga and subtract 15 ounces, works like a charm once you become accustomed to it........
