Of the swing arms, I have found the Deep 6 to be the most consistantly accurate, but there will be variance from hydrometer to hydrometer. Best way to know how accurate it is, is to find someone with a refractometer and test it

You can pick up a decent salinity refractometer on ebay or online for around $50 and up. Believe me it is worth it. No more twiddling around or not being so sure of your salinity. Just my .02.
