Hand Held Iris 50 Compass

An iconic instrument in the Plastimo range, the Iris 50 is the highly dependable companion of yachtsmen, regatta addicts and top-notch racers worldwide. It is regularly praised by technical press and prestigious skippers alike, as the most reliable, sturdy and handy hand-bearing compass. Iris 50 hand-bearing compass.

Good protection against hard knocks: the smooth finish feels soft in your hand, and it will not slip, even if it is wet.
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 your 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.
Soft bottom cell: engineered using ultra-sonic welding, it acts like an expansion diaphragm, preventing the formation of bubbles and leaks.
Course reading from above the compass: you can read your compass like a standard compass, with no need to look through the prism.
Outstanding legibility of the card, with one-degree graduations.

Built-in photoluminescent lighting is completely maintenance-free, impervious to corrosion, and operates without batteries or radio-active tritium.
As accurate out at sea as in the desert! Soundproof, shockproof and operational by night with no need for electrical supply: the Iris 50 compass is the precise and precious companion to "gazelles", women-only competing in the off-road Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles in the Moroccan desert.
