Finally!
After 3 busted glass hydrometers the last couple of months I can't tell you how glad I am this is here. It just arrived today and I popped it into some 60* tap water for some calibration and it was spot on at 1.000. I was worried it could be off being made of different materials than glass, but that worry was put to rest today. Thanks a ton NB!

Snapped at the join where bottom meets top
Well... I had high hopes for this product, but alas it failed on my third use. I had to bust out my glass hydro to do the job.

It snapped at the join where the top meets the bottom. Maybe I had a defective unit, but I can only comment with what I'm given.

As it stands right now, I would not recommend this product as being superior to a glass hydrometer. They are pretty much on equal grounds of fragility at that segment of the unit.

Shatterproof but still breakable
This came to me reading .097 in tap water at 68F. Not too big of a deal, you just add .003 to the readings.

Sadly this fell once from a height of 4ft thanks to a nice gust of wind and broke where the bottom bulb meets the top shaft. It's a small crack but it allows water into the bulb causing it to take on fluid and alter the reading. The only benefit to this was that there was no glass to clean up.

Minus 1 star for breaking, and another for improper calibration.

Hydrometer
Just received and used this hydrometer. After breaking 2 glass ones I thought this was a good idea. It's a shame it doesn't have a thermometer contained.

Good product not great
I used mine for the first time yesterday and I think it may be off by a little because of it being made of plastic and not being perfectly straight. Still works well just make sure you test it out first and gauge if there will be any difference in yours.
