Description  more details

If you have ever squinted to read the finishing gravity on your standard hydrometer, or wondered if it really had dropped 1/2° since yesterday, our Brewer's Edge Bottling Hydrometer is for you. Features a very slender stem attached to a large, bulbous float for the ultimate in sensitivity.

Hand calibrated, our Bottling Hydrometer is an ideal second hydrometer for those who wish to precisely monitor finishing gravity. Measures from 1.000 to 1.040 specific gravity in 1° calibrations that are twice as large as on our full range hydrometers. 12" long. Imported.

Great Product
Confused about the low ratings for this product. 
The top portion is made of thin glass, so it's probably not a good idea to be doing a majority of the handling from the top, thin area. The thin neck of this product creates a very small meniscus bulge, making it very easy to take the reading accurately.
Also, yes, this product also "forced" me into a larger test jar. I had to go to 10" jar to a 14" jar. The difference in sample size went from 2/3 of a cup to 1 cup of finished beer... not a big deal.
If you like new brewing tool and you aren't careless with them, this is a really cool/accurate product

Beyond Fragile
It is too tall to float in the glass jar with water. Was trying to calibrate. It broke as I was putting it back in the storage tube. It was way to fragile. I got about 3 minutes out of it. I would say do not use one of these unless you have a real laboratory setup.

Used once, then it snapped
As most other readers I# acknowledge the precison is great but is poorly made.

Poorly packaged
This hydrometer worked well, it seemed, but I only got to use it once.  I am used to working with fragile labware and use all of the neccesary caution.  Unfortunately that is not enough for this item; not because it is fragile, but because the tube it is packaged in has non-secured caps on BOTH ends, so unless you hold the tube at the base, the bottom cap will pop off when it slides down that last inch or so.  Terrible packaging design, unless it is designed to ensure a pile of lead shot on your kitchen floor...in which case, 5 stars.

Yes it's fragile
Yes it's fragile and you will also need a bigger jar, but if you keep those two things in mind, it works great, as advertised. You can really tell a very fine difference, taking a lot of the guesstimation out of trying to judge the meniscus and being off as much as a couple points
