Does anyone have the Ultimate Alpine DIGITAL SCALE? Is it any good and is it worth $49.00? I'm just looking to weigh components.

Ultimate makes 2 models, and would be curious if either is 'up to snuff' for weighing and recording for WW.

They have a 10kg (10g increment) hanging scale designed to fit into a standard bike work stand, and also a 3kg (1g increment) table top version as shown above.

Hanging: http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/14261- ... -Scale.htm

TableTop: http://www.pricepoint.com/detail.htm?st ... rice=49.98

What are your thoughts?? Do you think these would be reliable/accurate? Does WW have a list of recommended or approved consumer scales somewhere?

The ultimates are fine...a little pricey but get the job done. Personally any small cheap tabletop from eBay is good. That's where I got mine but I plan on picking up the hanging one.
