"It's a good compass, we're quite happy with it! It is quite clear - big digits. It is easy to remember your offset number to see if you're higher or lower and the arrows are good."

"We really like the Shift. In the J/70 we use the option to keep track of the upwind angles. It's really nice feature. It gives you up and down readings tack-to-tack, and you can reset it anytime. In the J/24 we don't use the shift tracking. The compass is easy to read - big display, and simple design."

"We use the Shift on our new Shaw 650 Sock Puppet. The display is bright and easy to read, the control buttons are easy to see and use, and the shift function is a great way to accurately track wind shifts on the beats. Knowing if we are headed or lifted takes guess work out of the equation!"
