|Thought I would post a follow-up regarding a previous post of mine for anyone looking into the same thing. Here's the original post: |
I ended up getting the Titan mirror arm from Paradise Watersports (Malibu dealer) down near me in Murrieta, CA. Thanks to Nick and everyone else in Parts/Service. Great to work with, as usual.
First impression was a well-built product. Excellent build quality. The install was very simple and the plastic sleeve that goes around the tower made it super easy to get the mirror right where I wanted it without scratching the crap out of the tower. The convex sleeve allowed very easy rotation of the mount to get it just right. An added bonus that I wasnít aware of prior to receiving the mount was that the mirror post had a plastic-dip coating on it. Seems to make the clamping action of the stock mirror much more secure by having something just a touch soft to squish onto. Should up the friction factor a bit to help keep the mirror from rotating on the post.
Upon driving, the mount is super solid and doesnít move at all. The mirror also didn't rotate on the post at all. The view of the wake is nice and centered. For me, it's much more natural having the mirror up and out of the way. I like having the windshield mirror-less.
Overall, this is an excellent mirror mount and highly recommended. I may get one of those Extreme CIPA mirrors to get a wider viewing angle. The current view isnít any worse than with the mirror in its stock location, but I'm thinking I may as well make it wider, especially for my fiance.
Thanks to Jason C. at Titan for getting on Wakeworld to explain things.
|How much did it cost?|
|$179-ish + tax, came to about $190 and change. I don't recall exactly. Cheaper than Wakeside.com, though. I believe Wakeside had it listed for $199.|
