  1. Ottimo strumento review by ANDREI 40 on 10/17/2018

    Avalon fa ancora centro. Strumento di eccellente fattura, molto preciso, maneggevole e intuitivo. assai stabile sia in altezza, dove c'è la possibilità di fissarlo con viti, sia in azimuth, con doppia possibilità di fissaggio a molla e con viti.
    Difetti sostanziali non ne trovo.
    O per meglio dire, se costasse un po' meno...
    Comunque ottimo prodotto davvero.
