    I Have a few myself. I Usually use the B-2, it is very sturdy and has a dovetail at each end so you can join two or more together if you need more length. The French Plastimo is very good and the arrangement of the arcs makes them large so that they are marked by the half degree, this is the most precise one of the plotters.

    You've got me flip-flopping regularly now! I like the Weems&Plath, Course Plotter #133. I find the degree marks well seperated and easy to read. There's a convienent "3" at mid scale. What plotter do you use? (I have a box full now thanks to ebay.)
