$130.00

Well known as the “HOCKEY PUCKS” they have long been the most famous and popular handbearing compasses of all time. There are two models available: the original Mini 2000, and the W&P (Weems & Plath) compass. The former has a larger translucent area over the compass card allowing a slightly brighter image. While both models are made by the same Company and have nearly identical designs, the W&P model takes advantage of a more economical manufacturing process. These key features of the compasses are very important to understand, and set these compasses apart from other handbearing compasses

Description

Well known as the “HOCKEY PUCKS” they have long been the most famous and popular handbearing compasses of all time. There are two models available: the original Mini 2000, and the W&P (Weems & Plath) compass. The former has a larger translucent area over the compass card allowing a slightly brighter image. While both models are made by the same Company and have nearly identical designs, the W&P model takes advantage of a more economical manufacturing process. These key features of the compasses are very important to understand, and set these compasses apart from other handbearing compasses:

DAMPING – The lightweight card, floating in a special high gravity spirit oil stabilizes on-bearing quickly, and with minimal overshoot.

PARALLAX & ACCOMMODATION – The compass card is optically focused at infinity, so that bearings can be read in sharp focus with the target, and without the need for a lubber line.

LIGHTING – A light activated phosphor provides illumination without batteries.

SIGHTING – The infinity focus obviates the need for holding at arms length during disturbed conditions at sea. With no lubber line to aim, instant bearings can be read, even on a flashing light. One degree graduations take the guesswork out of accurate bearings. Size 3″ diameter. SW 0.5 lb.
