Plastimo Iris 50 Hand Bearing Compass 63870 or 63871
Sturdy compass with good protection against hard knocks and with a smooth finish that feels soft in your hand but will not slip even if wet.
Outstanding legibility with one-degree gradations on the card.
No parallax error: the prism projects the reading of the bearing to infinity. You do not need to alternate close-reading to read the card and infinite-reading to take bearings.
Superb card stability and the wide 20 degree field of view, will accommodate the roughest sea conditions.
The pivot and very hard stone guarantee accuracy, long life and shock resistance.
Engineered using ultra-sonic welding, the soft-bottom cell acts like an expansion diaphragm, preventing formation of bubbles and leaks.
Course readings are also possible from above compass; reading like a standard compass - no need to look through prism.
