digital level

Just wondering what brands of digital levels seem to be better than others. I've read reviews on the angle cube by igaging that weren't great, but bad news always travels faster than good so I'm hoping to here good news about others. I intend to use it on my bender.

I like my Spi level, I have had no problems with it. Before that one I had a Smart Tool and it was junk, it didnt hold up very well.

I have a Husky from Home Depot.

Husky Digital Level : Home Depot


And have only great things to say about it. Good strong magnet, ruggedly built, bright screen light, and it even tells you the temperature when you turn it on.

Oh and it fits perfectly on my POB bracket I got from CaptainFab and has never fallen off when rotated.

I have several of that one and I think I have noticed something.
I had one sitting on a POB and another one stuck to the tube 90° or lengthwise on the tube. The one on the POB indicated a 0.5° out of plane(rotation) and the other one picked up a 2 degree shifted but if I rotated it back up to the top of the tube I suddenly regained a zero readout.
Rotate it the other way maybe 3 to 4 degrees and gained a random error.
I swapped the levels and picked up the error so I swapped the tube out as it could have been a funky tube and the results repeated and then I rotated the tube but kept the level perpendicular to the ground and it remained at zero.

This has never been a real problem but now it bugs me and I spend more time getting things to repeat. & they do eventually.
