Many divers take compasses for granted, considering them just an accessory to an overall dive gauge console system. Trying to navigate with a poorly designed or improperly functioning compass can be one of diving's more frustrating events. The XS Scuba Retractable Super Tilt Compass is a dual-purpose compass. The convenient side window allows quick reference of large, easy-to-read bearing indicators on a luminescent display for gun-sight accuracy. Or, for divers who prefer relative navigation, the ratchet bezel can be rotated easily even with thick neoprene gloves for navigating.
The luminous dial of the compass is designed with a half black/half luminous graphic to make quick work of compass direction, especially in low light and night diving conditions. The dial rests on a precision bearing and incorporates extremely strong magnets for super quick response, tilt and accuracy. While the compass module itself is very compact, the housing has a large vertical interior allowing viewing angles that would stop other compasses in their tracks. The compass bezel has compass headings in 30ø degrees numbered increments and indicator marks for every 10ø degrees.
Bezel has twin heading indicators for alignment of compass course, and a lubber line across the compass face. This highly accurate liquid filled compass comes in a durable rubber boot with a hose mount nut for attachment to retractor. Retractor attaches to diver with a split ring or snap hook, has a built-in quick-release buckle, and when extended has a 25" (63.5 cm) reach with coated stainless-steel cord. The pull force is 9 oz. (255.2 g).
