Default Scales

I was just wondering what type of scale does everyone use. I just bought a digital one and it fluctuates a good 8-10 pounds when ever I get on it.I had one of those old school ones that you wait til the numbers stop at the red line.It was always right on if I weighed myself the first thing every morning.Always was the same as the gym and Dr's. I had it some years and of course now they all seem to be digital.
Any good, reliable brands that don't cost a hundred bucks? I'm about to join up at a gym again so I guess I can use theirs but want one at home to ( to remind me to keep going to the gym )

I use a Tanita digital scale that I bought a few years back. I bought it for the BIA technology, but it's BS. However, the weight is accurate.

Yeah, i use the tanita also, but the BF% is inaccurate as it fluctuates too much depending on weather you are too hydrated or too dehydrated .. just like you said ...

I don't use a scale, I get hydro tested, but then again im better then you MHR so deal with it.. =P

All joking aside no matter what scale I use I notice a huge increase or decrease in weight depending on day, temp, water consumption, where on the floor its placed and if it wants to work correctly. I get the hydro done for free so every 2-4 week I go just to make sure I am either maintaining or staying within 1 - 1.5% Body fat.

For weight I don't care, its body fat I try to keep in check.
