VEE GEE® X-Series Handheld Refractometers are exceptionally simple to operate and provide quick, accurate measurements.  These wine and beer refractometers are an excellent way to measure the sugar content in your wort during the mash, pre-boil, and post-boil steps of the process.
Easy to Use
Operation consists of placing 1 or 2 drops of sample on the prism, closing the daylight plate over the sample, then looking through the focusable, cushioned-rubber eyepiece for the readings.
Tool-Free Calibration
The VEE GEE® exclusive Zero-Ring eliminates the hassle of using a separate tool for calibration. Simply place a few drops of distilled water or liquid standard (R.I. oil or prepared sucrose solution) on the prism, turn the built-in Zero-Ring until the shadow line is at the correct value of the liquid, and secure the set screw that's it.
Featuring the largest, easiest-to-read scale available; with clear, sharp figures, screen shading, and incredible contrast. These features significantly enhance overall accuracy even when several different operators use the instrument. Automatic Temperature Compensation frees the user from having to re-calibrate in work environments with large temperature swings. The effective compensation range is 50-86 F(10-30 C). All units feature rubber grips on the body, which block the transmission of hand heat to reduce temperature errors. 
The X-Series models feature rugged construction to provide years of reliable use. The prism is mounted in an all-metal housing which allows the sample and prism to reach temperature equilibrium quickly. Also feature non-roll stands to ensure that once the units are placed on a table or bench top, they won't be prone to roll off the surface.
Compact & Portable
The small size of the X-Series models allows them to be used anywhere the field, plant, or lab.

Nice Functional Refractometer A+
I purchased this refractometer to replace an older cheaper one. I used it yesterday for the first time. I love the dual Brix scale that is clear and easy to read. This unit is sturdy and appears to be well built. Glad I bought it! It only reads Brix so you have to convert to specific gravity.

Refractometer Reflections
This model has a larger readout of the degrees brix in the screen than my earlier model. It provides a more easily readable and therefore likely more accurate reading of brix. The surprise was the plastic syringe which facilitates placing juice on the surface of the prism. This eliminates the seed or pulp which sometimes gets in the way of placing the daylight plate flush over the prism

While it would be nice to have an SG scale, roughly converting from Brix is pretty simple. The contrast and visibility of the scale really are excellent, making it far easier to read than a cheaper tool I have used in the past.

Wish my eyesight was better
With my eyesight, granularity is 0.25 Brix only.

Highly Accurate built Ruggedly
The initial testing and use of this refractometer is it is very accurate and very heavy and sturdy compared to my other refractometer. The quality difference is obvious. I recommend this refractometer over the cheaper ones if you are looking for quality and accuracy.

Nice To Have On Hand
This is a great tool to have on hand during the boil. It's nice to be able to check your gravity very quickly at any giving point with just a few drops from your paddle. This is a sturdy product and seems to be built to last.
