Last night I dropped mine on the kitchen floor, it hit right on the tip and bounced up about 4 inches, landed on its side and its fine. 0.

258.
Broke my first one a couple weeks ago.
Only noticed it when my og kept going down every time I looked at it. Pretty soon I had water. Took it out of the test tube and it was cracked on the bottom.

I have killed 7 in 3 years of brewing... Whether through clumsiness, drunkenness or just sheer stupidity, I can kill a hydrometer....

(please note title under name)

This is why I just bought a refractometer...
