Which would you prefere to use .. with scales or without ??
Vidar could you post up them really fancy ones you found .
Will they with stand salt water & are they a good investment , essential part of a lure anglers kit ??

Bob,

For me, no scales.

I don't like the idea of hanging a fish by its neck to weigh it (or lift it out of the sea without supporting its body). I have done it in the past, I'll admit, but I try not to do it now.

Handy for holding a fish's mouth when trebles are looking dangerous though.

Cheers

Paul

real boga grips are awesome..

no contest imho.

They have scales but they aren't super fine..the 15lb version measures in 4oz increments.
Ours have been through the mill and are about 95% as shiny as when new over 10 years ago.

Self serviced with a strip down, clean and lube just twice in that time.
Highly recommended.
Paul .
Thanks for that wasnt to sure about the scales , but i tend to weigh any fish in the netted catch bag .
The fish grip would be as you say for holding any fish to release or for difficult hook ups with trebles ? :lol:
Cheers Keith ,
Would yours have to be got through USA internet ?

I think Pat sells em Bob.
I have been thinking about buying some sort of Bogga Grip for some time, but only want to have to buy one that is Ok for salt water.

If Pat has the really good ones I wonder how much they are?
Cheers rapalajoe .
the ocean grippers were the ones i was looking for :lol:
I too have seen a few with the ocean grippers, when you compare them to the boga is it just individual taste, or is there a preferred one between the two?

Do the boga's come in different sizes?

Damn that pricey man....say quite few guys using them here...dependable and never seen any that corode so far...good design....made from alluminium .frankly i prefered them more because of safety factor to control fish while holding them....at the same time distance ur hand from the treble hook....got friend that have to hold fish that hooked to the plug and 3 treble hooked to his hand went to the doctor...miserable....btw theres other choice wch made in taiwan if not mistaken...nearly identical....cheaper too.....maybe vidar know bout that....and the taiwan made i saw last time have the scale and pivot jaw.cheeerrss...
I've got the Berkeley (?) trigger version (got it from Mick when i was out there in the summer). But i've wanted to get a scales for a while to weigh my double when i get it, so i bought a 'proper' Boga recently. Got the 15lb version in a deal from Orvis for £80 delivered !!!! Have some of that my son !!!!!

know Rivalley (RBB) make one that is similar to the Ocean grip, although it's without the scames (I think). Only about £45 though and the RBB range is built for saltwater too so could be an option. :cool:
A few weeks ago I got a fantastic deal ($50) on the 22Ib Lipper grip on eBay and I have to say I’m pretty impressed. I have checked the scales against my electronic Samson’s and they are surprisingly accurate. However, in my opinion they are on the heavy side for roving shore angling and I'm strongly considering the scale less Ocean Grip 2100 for that.

Aaaaah, that Frichy one is like the RBB one I was thinking of. The pro-fish' looks good though!!
The Ocean Grip 2100 looks very nice.

If I were to get a lip grip though it would have to be one with scales. If I hook a lunker one day I want to be sure as near as damn it it's over the 10lb mark.
Don't you want one of my home made ones then Bob?
