Angling and Sport Scales
Whether a weekend angler weighing bass or a commercial fisherman weighing tuna, Africa Scale Manufacturing has the perfect fishing scale to meet your needs. From the inexpensive and simple spring hanging scales, to the mechanical dial hanging scales to the heavy duty electronic digital crane scales, we have the scale to meet your needs.
The new breed of weigh scales have advanced in leaps and bounds, now offering the user a quick and easy weight of that trophy catch. Best of all they are accurate, and as much as it can hurt our pride when the reading is low, they can help put the "truth" back into fishing again.
Spring scales are a rudimentary and basic-style type of apparatus. When a fish is hung from the affixed hook, a spring lever is pulled downwards along a lined weight chart. Where the lever stops is the final weight of the fish.
Spring scales run the gamut in prices, and with this style, the more money you spend, the higher level of accuracy you can expect to receive. For those looking for a ballpark weight, spring scales will certainly do the job. The lower-end models may not be as accurate as those in a higher price range, but they do provide a quick and easy readout.
Digital (LCD Display)
Digital scales are the cream of the crop when it comes to weighing devices, and their advantages are easily recognized. Digital scales work on the premise of a hook and LCD display, digitally showcasing the weight on a screen. Weights are very accurate, and the process is quick and effortless.
