Balance

For the ultimate in accuracy, the dials in magnetic compasses should be balanced to compensate for dip caused by the earth's magnetic field. Our Ritchie Compasses come standard balanced for Zone 1 (essentially all of the Northern Hemisphere).

  

When requesting balancing for Zone 2-7, please indicate the zone most central to your boating area. Once balanced for a specific Zone, the compass will maintain accuracy for one Zone north or south.
