Plastimo Iris 50 Handbearing Compass £55.99
We're big fans of this bestselling Plastimo Iris 50 Compass. Popular for a number of years now, it's an outstanding hand bearing compass which is very well designed to sit neatly in the hand. Its armoured casing means you'll have to go some way to damage this marine compass. And even though the casing may look hard, it isn't - it feels soft in the hand and won't slip when wet. Where there might be fading light or darkness, there's built-in photo-luminescent lighting to help you view the digits with ease. The card has one-degree graduations. A prism projects the reading of the bearing to infinity. This also makes for easy reading of the card, as you do not need to alternate close-reading to read the card and infinite-reading to take bearings.
No parallax error: a prism projects the reading of the bearing to infinity. This also contributes to a more comfortable operation, as you do not need to alternate close-reading to read the card and infinite-reading to take bearings.
Optimum conditions to take bearings, thanks to the superb card stability and the wide 20 field of view, which will accommodate the roughest sea conditions.
Most accurate bearing: the pivot and very hard stone are a guarantee of long life and shock resistance of your compass.
Built-in photoluminescent lighting, completely maintenance-free, impervious to corrosion, operates without batteries or radio-active tritium.

Excellent little compass

As advertised and as expected I received the H/B Compass in perfectly good condition and have used it out on the water. The compass card inside is clear to see and use and the bearing line in a distinct red colour stands out. The equally bright colouring to the casing makes locating easy in dark/dim conditions. Essential piece of sailing equipment.
