    Re: Sextant "heft"

    Suspect it's a personal issue; that individuals feel comfortable with
    handling a weight that suits them. This is backed up by previous postings in
    times gone by - people have compared a sextant with a rifle, and gone on to
    say that they preferred, for example, a heavier weapon for optimum
    stability.
    
    Having some experience of both different brands and weights of sextants and
    rifles, can say that the 'heavier is better' argument doesn't work for me,
    but accept that it does for others. Its no big deal.
