refratometers

I have an instant ocean hydrometer and it was given me off the wall readings so I went and bought a deep six hyd. both gave me completely different readings. So I went and ordered a refractometer from foster and smith. It will be here friday cant wait! are they fairly easy to read?

You might have to but it is real easy. Have to use RO/DI or distilled FW.
