Happy New Year All. I'm looking at adding a Cipa Extreme Mirror to provide a wider view from the driver's seat (especially towards the sides of the boat). Anyone have one of these and if so, how do you like it? I'd prefer the center windshiled mount mirror vs. the Cipa Wing side view mirror.

Thanks,

Mike

I have one, they are a good mirrors! I may have one I can sell you; a few yrs ago my wife bought one for me. She did not know I had purchased one around the same time. I think I still have the other mirror, I will look for it if your interested.

Have the mirror. Love it. In my setup the mirror comes off the windshield.

Check out the ptm edge mirror, its more $$ but you get one view vs 3.

if you have a tower the wings-view out in the flats is blocked by the legs of the tower and the mirror is no better than a single-lens mirror.

If something happens to my current mirror, this is what it will be replaced with.

I love my new PTM mirror. Very nice mirror. The way it folds flat so I can put the cover on without removing it is my favorite feature.

Ouch! Those are quite pricey. Do like the fold down feature.

No tower on the classic. I do run the Bimini throughout the Summer but don't think it will block too much of the view.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

I have the PTM edge, bought it based on the recommendations on this board, it is awesome and worth the money.

I bought the Extreme mirror last year and have been very happy with it.

I had an extreme and went to the PTM. The mount for the extreme can be used on the PTM, which cuts the price slightly. The PTM has a superior field of view without question.

Check out Walmart, they sell the Extreme Mirror for $59.00. IMO, way cheaper than the PTM, but the PTM has an unobstructed pannoramic view.

I'm thinking about upgrading to the PTM. However I just found this new CIPA wave version of it, 7x17.
Its only $100 vs $300. Anyone have one, seen one, or can add any advice.
I had the standard, then upgraded to the Extreme with 3 mirrors and NOW? I'd prefer $100 if its close to the PTM at $300, no brainer. But I'm afraid the $100 one is more like their 100 degree, smaller one.vr100, 6x14 instead of 6x20. I'm in AL and using a mirror instead of a 3rd person is convenient.

I have the CIPA version, used for over a year no issues, cheaper made then the PTM.

For the price difference, I'd recommend the CIPA Vision 180. I compared the Vision 180 on my boat to a PTM in the showroom on a Ski Nautique. Not able to do both on the water.

My wife really likes the Vision 180 over the older CiPA Extreme with 3 mirrors. It has a huge vision area. I could see my wife playing on the course with no problems. It is a little taller in the middle area than the PTM. Same quality mirror/glass as the original mirror or Extreme. The image is slightly out of proportion due to the large convex. It has a large plastic case, but was very light weight. As previously stated the Vision 180 does fit the original "cup" mount on the extreme. Which I have 4 extra ones if anyone needs one.

Extreme for sale if anyone is interested, $30 plus shipping.

For my application - X25 - The distance of the raise arm over the windshield is way to low.

Nice price though if you don't need a taller rise on the mirror.

I like the 180, can you connect to a tower arm?

The CPIA 180 will need a ball mount adapter for most tower mounts.

I have the CPIA 180 on a Monster Tower Mirror Mount with a Monster CPIA Mirror Adapter.

Anyone know if the tower mirror adapter works with the stock windshield mirror arm on 2000 era Mastercrafts?
