Here's the story! A friend of mine wants to go to either a wrist mount or retractable compass. But by looking at them all over the place, I'm figuring that there's a wrist mount that can be put on a retractable lanyard so that he can use it either way. I'm trying to figure out if there is any difference in design between a retractable and wrist mount or can they be used either way. Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
