The thing I mainly use this scale for these days is for testing leaders. I tie all of my own salt water leaders. Once I tie them and before I cut the tag ends on the blood knots I connect one end to a hook on my work bench and use the scale to pull it to 80% of the tippet rating. Then I feel confident to use the leader.
