    Depends for what you are using them.. depends on the precision needed if something like 0.5% - 1% off is acceptable for large quantities etc etc.

    Yea maintenance helps a ton but then again depends on the environment you are placing them.. each business thinks at every angle before deciding on what to buy.

    If you run a legitimate business that has a HACCP program, maintenance isn't an option. You have to calibrate every year in order to stay compliant.

    My best bet is these athletic commission scales don't get used often enough and are typically in very environmentally controlled environments and do not travel large distances. At least compared to actual manufacturers who would use them every day several times a day.

    Just thinking, what would be the downside to the commission having a digital platform scale and call in a calibration lab the day before the event to calibrate their ONE scale? $50.

    I think everyone was overweight , the commission got bribed to let it slide. Remember how woodley lost a whole 1 lb by taking underwear off? What kind of underwear weighs a fucking pound? Bullshit They weigh 0.2lbs max. They all missed weight,the commission is out of control
    Bullshit ,

    Typing it into Google is the same amount of effort with an instant response.

    Not trying to give you a hard time here, this is a pet peeve of mine. When I want a complex or nuanced answer from a particular community I'll ask, but if I want to know a quick and simple answer to anything, I use Google.

    I can't tell you how many times someone has asked a simple question on Sherdog, I've literally right clicked on the question they asked to search Google, and replied within seconds. They come back and say "thanks I didn't know that" and I think "neither did I until I spent three seconds searching Google".

    I have seen other times, where they have used digital scales at some ufc events...or other mma events. you can't tell me those digital scales are not 100% accurate.

    Personally, I think they're accurate enough, but I'm no scale expert.
