This refractometer is made of high quality materials with a good weight to it. The added bonus of coming with calibration fluid is a plus. This is a must have in this hobby, don't rely on an old swing arm.

Great, easy to use, accurate refractometer. Bought slightly cheaper refractometer elsewhere and had to return it 3 times. This one easy to adjust and easy to read. Spend the extra 10 bucks and get this one.

This. THIS. I love how easy it is to read, it even works well in pretty low light. I was very pleased with the quality of the piece. It weighs quite a bit, but heavier means sturdier, and when you've got wet hands, that means a lot! Calibration is super simple, and can be performed in less than a minute. The case is well padded, and has a firm locking clip to keep it closed. A very good product!

4 out of 5 By Daniel on 5/4/2014

The refractometer itself is sturdy and reliable. If your upgrading to better test equipment this the best tool to measure salinity/spec. gravity there is. The only reason I didn't give it a fifth star is because of the case. The inside of the case is solid and protects the refractometer well, BUT the latch on the outside of the case broke when I first opened it and the case doesn't shut. All in all I definately recommend getting this...just don't be rough with the latch on the case.
One of my better investments By Gps on 4/28/2014

Probably the best forty dollars I've spent in this hobby thus far. After using a hydrometer I had for beer making for a couple months I put the refractometer in with an order of other supplies and it's made checking my salinity far easier and without my having to worry about the hydrometer giving an accurate reading. Also with the hydrometer it required me to take out 3/4 of a cup of water to do one reading with the Brs refractometer all it takes is a few drops.

I love this thing!
I have been burned so many times by the float units.
This is definitely the way to go, and this device is high quality!

Easy to use and read only takes seconds to determine your salinity.
Good Refractometer, Case Ok By Ben on 4/17/2014

This Refractometer is good to me. It may not be a high end Refractometer but it does it's job. As long as you calibrate it before each use your good. The case for it feels cheap though. As far as the Refractometer itself, it's easy to read & to calibrate. Would recommend to anyone looking to buy one for either their first time or buying another for a spare.
All around great value By Matt on 4/17/2014

Unless you plan on rinsing your "fill up hydrometer" with RO every time you use it, I recommend picking up one of these. Easy to use with accurate results. I will never reef without one again
