Now this is not a cheap compass. However it does work really well, good size base plate,illuminated direction, bezel and reference points. Good roamer at varying scales. Sighting system real good for that pinpoint accuracy. Not a classic needle rather a floating disc, which helps with sensitivity and stops that needle flutter. Overall a great compass as a piece of kit, just not sure where the extra £50 over Type 4 comes from.
