    Plastimo Contest 101 Compasses (Cruising)

    PLASTIMO COMPASSES - Contest 101 - Overview


    When Plastimo invented the double reading compass, it was a major innovation which allowed the yachtsman to follow his course from the cockpit and the cabin. The Contest 101 goes a step further : its exclusive mounting possibilities on any bulkhead -whatever the thickness- and its aesthetics allow the Contest 101 to adapt perfectly to today's yachts, both in terms of engineering technique and glamorous design.

    The Contest range is part of the Plastimo "legend" and includes a comprehensive range of compasses for sailboats.

    It is not by chance that the "Contest" name has virtually become a generic word, the reference compass for yachtsmen around the world. For many years, the Contest compass has been one of the best ambassadors of their company, so why hesitate? Trust the Contest brandname for performance and reliability. Plastimo is the only compass manufacturer offering a 5-year warranty.

    The model for inclined bulkhead is designed for a bulkhead tilted by 10 to 25° from vertical. The card remains fully efficient, even with a very high angle of pitch.

    - Good protection against hard knocks ; the smooth finish feels soft in your hand, and it will not slip, even if it is wet.

    - Outstanding legibility of the card, with one-degree graduations.

    - 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 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.

    - Built-in photoluminescent lighting: completely maintenance-free, impervious to corrosion, operates without batteries or radio-active tritium.

    - Course reading from above the compass : you can read your compass like a standard compass, with no need to look through the prism.
