A must have instrument for any reefer.
This refractometer has a solid professional feel. Full metal body construction. The eye piece can be adjusted to accommodate your eye sight. I gave the Performance 4 stars due to the fact the prism requires a bright light source. During the day any window would be fine but in the evenings you'll probably need a flashlight to shine on the prism.
Solid piece of equipment By Chris H on 7/8/11

I've always used the cheap hydrometers in the past, but I've been very happy with this refractometer. It feels like a quality piece of equipment. Just remember to calibrate it to the value BRS advises you on the sticker and not what is in the user manual. Look on the bottom of the case for the sticker.

Ive been using this tool for about a year and love it. It seems to be very accurate and when the calibration fluid os gone I use water directly from my R/O. Great product!
Great way to test salinity By Matthew on 5/9/11

This unit is inexpensive and easy to calibrate. It was far more accurate than my htdrometer, and I was able to correct a salinity that was too high before it became a real issue
Should have bought this sooner By Dave on 4/26/11

I have been into reef tanks for about 10 years using a hydrometer. I knew these weren't very accurate but very easy to use. Over the last year I started adding a lot of SPS to my tank and had to make sure the water chemistry was as stable as possible. I decided to purchase this refractometer and found it even easier to use than the hydrometer and a lot more accurate! Calibration is simple with the calibration fluid that comes with the unit.
Great product! By Shawn on 4/23/11

I purchased this refractometer 2 weeks ago, it also came with free calibrating solution. It has worked great so far I calibrated it which is simple and it works great. My LFS had this same product for $90 and I got it for $40, what a great deal BRS is the best.

After seeing many videos and reviews about using a refractometer I decided to purchase this one from BRS. I was questioning the inexpensive price compared to competitor online stores. Upon receipt, the instructions were very good and the quality of the unit was amazing for the price.
I was able to use the meter within minutes. The unit is very accurate. I use it on both my systems. BRS has offered a great product for a great price. I recommend this for everyone that used a Hydrometer to check salinity.
