Arrow Best caliper methods ? (Durnin/Womersley 4-site & Parrillo 9-site)

I knew that caliper estimates can be "off", but wasn't aware of such huge differences between the different methods used. Also, some cheap plastic calipers tend to sort of wear out over time and start showing lower readings, which is why I got new ones to ensure more accurate readings. So last...
