it's not like it's one OR the other, and if you own a digital caliper you are prohibited from ever owning or using a dial one..
I don't think anybody said that. The OP wanted to know which one we liked and why. I like dial better because of no batteries. Some people seem to think it's a big deal to worry about changing a battery. Some people think the digital is faster and easier. I have used both and for me it's just as fast and easy to read the dial. I could care less what other people use, this is what works for me.
