I've owned Moscow compasses with the wide needle (Model 22) and the narrow needle (primarily Model 3s).
If you look at their online catalog
, the Model 22 seems to be a "tourist" model (I'm sure this is a mistranslation to some degree), while the model 3 is a "sport" model. None of the sport models are wide needles.
My experience is if you're running, you want something like the 3, although you do have to level it a second or so before you look at it.
My recommendation is to pick the compass for its stability while running, if you need that. The bearings are pretty much the same, driven primarily by how fussy you are. For what it's worth, I prefer the narrow needle for precision bearings. I like how the lines on the rotating capsule below the needle appear when they're lined up with the needle. But, honestly, it doesn't matter that much for bearing accuracy.
One thing I do think matters is the short vs long thumb baseplate. I do not like using the XL (or XR) short version for bearings in the woods. I like the long L (or R) model because it's just easier to maintain a bearing with the longer "direction of travel" indicator. I only do short adventure races, but I tend to pack an actual basepate compass when I think I need "ultimate bearing accuracy" for a long bearing run with a crappy map. The longer visual indication just makes the difference.
However, in 408 (difficult to run / medium green), it's as much your skill as the compass. It's always difficult if you have to divert around obstacles all the time.
