Favourite style of scaler

I've always skinned fish but I'm interested in what scalers work the best.

I'm particularly interested in fish over 3kg with hard to remove scales

I just went down to have a scaling comp between the store bought and the diy bottle top version

Both were good but the store bought version wins by a nose -

I think it was due to the pulling action used with the red tool

Yeah I usually skin but I'm interested to see how snapper skin reacts with hot oil.

I'm not a redfin eater - does the skin taste bad

Seen these before?

http://www.anglers-secrets.com/the-b...h-scaler-ever/

Added bonus is that they demonstrate on a snapper (albeit a slightly smaller one than Big Fish Larry catches)
