Plastimo Iris 50 Hand Bearing Compass
A sturdy marine compass with good protection against hard knocks. The smooth finish feels soft in your hand but will not slip even if wet.
Outstanding legibility of card with one-degree gradations. No parallax error: a 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 reading is also possible from above compass; can read like a standard compass - no need to look through prism.
Built-in photoluminescent lighting, completely maintenance free, impervious to corrosion, operates without batteries or radioactive tritium. Clearance +/-12 degrees. Red lubber lines. 5 year warranty.
