    Great Price, and Accuracy

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Its well made, the plastic injection molding is good quality, and it has tight tolerances and it has a tight hinge, so it doesnt flap about. The dial is nice and responsive. Great Price

    None Cant complain, you get what you pay for.

    points north, solid construction

    posted by katanakat on 04/18/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Very solid. Clear plastic housing of compass itself came with little to no scratches whatsoever. The needle points in the same direction (north!) on all six units I purchased. The hinge seems very firm with no play at all. The lanyard is a bit cheap, but do...

    Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Very nice quality and well done product. The acrylic plastic is quite clear and the lens are quite good for alignment.
    Cons:
    The joint used on the acrylic is not so good and after a few usages became loosely and not hard as it was on the first use.
