Quality issue? No POS

I've put it through the wringer

UPDATE: I have now been using this crap for a few months. It is a piece of Sh&t! I found that the needle sticks and it hangs up on the clinometer needle. It's not reliable for any type of serious outdoor use. Great for 10 year old that's going to put it in a toy box and leave it there. END I received my Sunto Global and began using it without issue. I have never used or needed declination correction equipped compass, so initially I didn't use it. When I did decide to give the correction adjustment a try, I found that the screw is so damn tight that the cheap little metal key Sunto provides, bent and twisted. I had to get out my jewelers screwdrivers (hard steel) to make the adjustment. Remind me never to try adjusting it again, it may break, which defeats the purpose of the correctable declination. Sunto needs better quality control. What other quality issues are hiding? I won't bet my life on this compass that's for damn sure.
