Has anyone used a Belomo 12x loupe?

and do you like it?

I misplaced my Belomo 10x so I was thinking of ordering a 12x for a bit more magnification. I wanted to see if you all had any opinions of it first, though.

Thanks,
Sonoma

I use a 10x and a 30x. I prefer the 30. But I am also insane.

Thanks Ame. You can use a 30? - wow.

I have a 10x (somewhere) and a 20x and find the 20x not too useful cause it's so hard to focus. The 20x is good to look at prongs but it takes me about 5 mins to get the focus right and still for long enough.

You must have awesome hand/eye coordination.

Anyone else, 12x?

I do have good hand eye but otherwise my coordination is crap!

But yes I find it actually easier to use a 30.
