Verified Buyer Reviewed by Rider Ric from Tennessee on Sunday, July 10, 2016This is a good compass there is one short coming with the one I received, the detents that hold the mirror for sighting are very weak and do not hold at the proper angle. This is fixed by using a finger to align the mirror and hold it at the proper angle. Outside of that it works very well. I wish Brunton had made the case out of metal (brass) but for a modern compass it is as expected.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by VT to OR from Oregon on Tuesday, April 12, 2016Have not gone out with it yet, but it came in great condition and at a great price.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Lost Leader from North Carolina on Tuesday, April 12, 2016I had read other reviews that said these arrived broken, however I thought with a $40.00 compass there was no way. Boy was I wrong, the needle was broken and floating inside and the thing looked like it had been used for years. Piece of trash. I bought a good Sylvia. Sierra Trading Post was excellent on the return, no problems and quick credit.
Reviewed by src from gardnerville, nv on Sunday, April 10, 2016Circle in circle, uggg. I ended up using the line and subtracting 180.
Setting the declination is not easy if you want to be accurate.
The needle has a tendency to shift off the pivot when jiggled so you need to shake to get it to spin freely.
If you don't hold it very level, the needle will drag on the bearing alignment as you rotate the ring.
but it does work.
