Does anybody own a digital level? If so, what length(s), what brand, and do you like it? Our local Sears is going out of business, so I can get a good deal on one, but I need to decide fast!

I’ve used one to calculate pitch, but I still find that the bubble is more accurate for actual leveling. The digital gauge could read 0 even when the bubble was out of level. That was a husky brand, fwiw. Just don’t assume that the digital gauge is dead on.
