The Model 8* Elite compass combines the stability of the Model 9 compass with the speed of the model 2 compass, using a special star shaped disk in the capsule. Select from any of the 6 Moscompass plate options.
The Str8 compass has some few features that stand out: - an adjustable thumb angle. Ever had to worry about whether your direction arrow was pointing straight ahead of you? The Str8 compass has three different angle settings for your thumb strap to avoid that problem - an anti-slip map gripper on the base of the thumb plate - a 95 mm direction line that runs right through the compass module - a sharp corner at the tip to mark your spot on the map
Did you know? Compasses need to be balanced for different regions of the world. For orienteering outside of Europe or North America, you will want a different compass. The O-Store carries compasses for Brazil / South America and for Australia / New Zealand
