The Thief by Fermtech is by far the easiest tool to use.

That's subjective, a matter of personal experience and opinion. I started with a theif, and put the hydrometer right in it after drawing a sample. But I just had a hard time reading it in there. Usually there was too much foam on the top line.

I seem to get less foam when drawing with my baster.

And to transfer to a sample jar was a pain too. Plus I got more dribble sit seams from my winetheif then my turkey baster. That's why I switched.

It's all part of the brewing process, finding what works for YOU. And usually that comes from trial and error.
