  • Not bad

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    -Nice for a look
    -Strap
    -Ruler for 1:25.000 and 1:50.000 and a milimeter -Ruler 0-120mm
    -Magnifying glass in the middle
    -Stable arrow

    Cons:

    -Rotating is not smooth, after unscrewing it was hard to screw it and fasten, has only 2 screws instead of 4.
    -Illuminating colour is not exactly put where it should be
    -The fixed black ring shows north 2 degrees right from the printed line on transparent bottom (axle of compass). Not sure if it is a con or not, as at my city it is nearly a value of magnetic declination (2 degrees 49 minutes east). But ie. at Madeira it is 6 deg 55 min W.

    OtherThoughts:

    I can get the same for a nearly same price locally, as I realized. But have to pay posting fee.

    Bottomline:

    I need it only for setting up TV antennas, so for it's price it is good. For orienteering I will buy something better.
