Frustrating to Use
from Durham, NC
Comments about Blick Masterbow Compass:
This is the only compass I own at present, and I've had it for at least a year, so I can't really compare it with other brands. The problem I have consistently had with this one is that neither the metal point nor the lead will stay in place no matter how much the little wheels are tightened. At the least pressure, they slide back into their slots. At times the metal point almost comes out of its slot. Just trying to draw a single circle I have had to re-tighten over and over. Maybe it's a design flaw. At least the compass was not expensive.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have bought many compasses, as I use them with my students in workshops to make mandalas. Many of them have broken after a short time of use. The Blick compass is probably the best one I have, very easy to use and is holding up. I will only buy this one from now on.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best in-class, and a tremendous value
By Math Teacher
from NYC, NY
Once you set the compass to a certain measure, it stays put. Due to its metal construction, there is no play or wiggle even with the clumsiest hands. The adjustment wheel is stiff at first but becomes a little easier with use as with most compasses. In conclusion, it's stiffer than Staedler's equivalent, heftier, and at half the price, it is the compass to beat.
