I’m currently debating whether or not to pick up a Cammenga 27. I’ve thoroughly researched them and feel like they are a good investment. However, I’ve seen the Brunton lensatic for around $15 dollars. I’m very familiar with map and compass work, and rely on my Silva baseplate. I’m curious what advantages I’ll gain, and how often I’ll use it,given the heavily wooded terrain here in Maine . I realize that quality counts when relying on navigation equipment, but im wondering If I should take my chances on an inexpensive lensatic and check it against my baseplate. I’m thoroughly impressed by the amount of knowledge here, I’m wondering what experiences you all have had with lensatic compasses in thick brush mixed hardwoods and how many of you use both a lensatic and baseplate combined? Is an expensive lensatic worth the investment or would I be better off upgrading my baseplate instead? I’m particularly interested in @x39 s thoughts on this, as a Maine woodsman.
