View Full Version : Slimguide calipers versus Accu-Measure

06-17-2003, 10:32 PM
After a great deal of thought I finally bought a second pair of calipers, this time a pair of Slimguides. I was concerned about the accuracy of my older Accu-Measure.

I'm finding a huge discrepancy between the mm measurements between the two on all skinfolds for the 7 site method. The difference is very dramatic, 4 mm less on average for all skinfolds using the Slimguide. What's the deal? Is the Accu-Measure that bad? Or is the Slimguide that off? So confusing...
