you obviously know it is better to have one than not so when you get one, you'll just wonder why you waited..its fun to spin it and get hard numbers! plus it will give you an excuse to drink what you have in the test tube.
but even with a hydrometer, you technically always only have an approximately abv. you can correct for temperature but if you had fancy shmancy lab equipment at your disposal, you would see that its still not 100$% accurate. most people just live with it because its not a big deal.
