I was wondering if anyone bought one of these. I am looking for something fairly cheap, but I don't want a piece of crap. I know you get what you pay for, but are these decent? 7QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItem

Had one on our Supra - just remember to take off the Mirror when done for the day, our rubber came off in 6 months

doesn't look very adjustable. I got one from wakeair. it was reasonable and has a few more pivots in the arm.

And i don't take it off when done for the day.... not sure why you would.

I got one for my Supra at begining of the season and so far it works great. You do need to unscrew the mirror at the pivot point for trailering to the lake because the road vibration will eventually unscrew it. Mine luckily fell inside my cockpit. But for the money, you definetily can't go wrong. It stays put when you are out on the boat and provides good visibility.

I had a huge issue with this company and would not recommend it based on that. The board racks work ok but the rubber keeps coming loose and the metal tears up the boards.

I believe hat mirror on DIYwake is the same one that precision metal machining is selling on E bay. When I spoke with Rio when I bought mine, he told me that he supplies the retailers for these.

I bought one from DIY and it works good for the money, but it does tend to need re-tightening from time to time as crossing back over double ups seems to make it swing down a little. It would be nice if the two pieces that join together to make the pivot point were grooved so this issue could be eliminated, but again for the money you can't beat it.

Leo we put one on the SANTE from DIY. It needs to be adjusted, but it looks good. Do you and your team want to ride saturday morning? We are going out early.

I bought one of those a few years back from boss accessories. It was ok. The one feature I liked was that I could swing the mirror up and out of the way. The one thing I didn't like was the mount for the mirror. The mirror would rotate down when I hit chop or drove a d-up. I now have one from Skylon...I think I like that one better...much more solid.

I have this mirror setup. It works very well and the customer service that Sampson shows is great.
