I've noticed that weigh in weights are always listed in one of three ways... to the nearest half pound (most common), the nearest quarter pound, or the nearest tenth of a pound.
I was curious what determines the level of accuracy used when doing weigh ins? Does it have to do with where the weigh in takes place? For example the Sturm/Griffin weigh in was done in Germany and was done in tenths (Sturm 159.6 and Griffin 159.3). Does it have to do with the sanctioning body?
Not that it makes all that much of a difference, but if you had a guy who's actual weight was 160.2 but he weighed in to the nearest half a pound he would be 160 at the limit where if it were the the quarter or tenth he would be over. Just wondering why there weigh in weights are not consistent to the same increment across the board.
