First I should confess that I am NOT good with directions. BUT, with
this compass strapped to the front of my Eddyline Fathom LV, I
know know which direction is which! It happpens to fit nicely in the
depressed hole that Eddyline left to permanently attach a compass.
I chose this compass b/c I could attach/remove at will. The small
bungees that came on the compass work great when attached to my
perimeter lines. The compass stays in place when I roll or practice
self rescues. It is easy to read from the cockpit.
wonderful compass best compass
I have found highly visible on my
deck bag nice profile like
everything about this one. Highly
recommend for any kayak
Nice, low-profile compass. Highly
visible numbers, even when
mounted way forward on the
Easy to see, rugged,
waterproof...exactly what I
wanted for off-shore kayaking.
Very happy with it. good quality
and easy to read.
I think this is the BEST non-
permanently mounted compass out
there. The Ritchie is too big,
exposed, and fragile, the Suunto
is nice but again fragile, this
compass is just well thought out
with plastic armor on top where
compasses tend to get whacked
with paddles and rocks. Also has
cardinal directions designated
with big, easy to read
letters,instead of just degrees
Possibly the best kayak
compass out there. I like this
model so much that I hard-
mounted two on my tandem
sailboat (one in each
cockpit), and I have a third
on my touring kayak. PROS:
stable, easy to read, large
numbers, able to handle heavy
waves and still pivot,
accurate, all three have
worked perfectly for 10 years.
CONS: none so far.
