I really love that you can fit any type of pencil or marker into this compass. It's easier and less clumsy to use than those old circle master compasses. The only downside is that the pointy part isn't that pointy, so it tends to slip out of place if you're not being super careful. If there was a way to fix that part this would be perfect. But still a pretty good deal!
Better scholastic grade but still has concerns

I ordered this item hoping to get something better than the flimsy plastic ones that my students tend to struggle to keep from slipping open as they draw. The metal body is nice but after using for one project the students were popping the point out of the unit rendering it mostly useless. It the point wasn't removed, the little plastic screw had been damaged or gone. These were mostly freshman high school kiddos... I will admit that changes in classroom and supply management helped BUT I wish I had known before I ordered.
