I am interested in this as well. Also, I can't find the mount that would work for our tower arms on the website. Did I just miss it?

It looks pretty good. There are some good shots of it in the 2014 X2 video. Amazon has it for $62 shipped.

I think I read it uses a ball and socket mount. The monster tower arm adapter is probably the cheapest option. The ptm edge tower arm adapter should also work.

Anybody know how it compared to the PTM Edge mirror? Quite a bit less expensive.

Here it is on the new 2014 X2 https://vimeo.com/69014274

I can't believe CIPA doesnt make a mount for tower mirror arms :confused:

Mirror costs $62 on Amazon, but I can't find a windshield mount for under $130 for it...

The ptm-edge cfr-200 is $99, and it should would.

CIPA Extreme mirror and mount is $59 at Walmart (http://www.walmart.com/ip/17805939?wmlspartner=wlpa&adid=22222222227015528402&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=18153007510&wl4=&wl5=pla&wl6=40015303150&veh=sem). Buy it, list the mirror without the mount and keep the mount. I'm using my CIPA Extreme mount for my PTM mirror. Sold the old extreme mirror without the mount.

That's a windshield mount. I think most of us are talking about the tower mount for the CIPA.

And added this bracket to it....? CIPA Extreme Marine Mirror

Could you mount this to the windshield but facing up and not down? So it was over the glass instead of under it. I have an old one that came with the boat thats mounted to the strut bar on the windshield, it wobbles and bonces around and would like to replace it with something more sturdy and modern looking.

This is my PTM mirror on the mount that came with my CIPA Extreme. Not sure if it's the same mount entirely, but I have mine mounted above the windshield.

That doesn't look bad at all I don't think. Although your photos did just make me think about the walk thru windshield and how that might not be the best placement right in the center or even close to center. And then I would have to have it all the way to the right and in my field of view.

Might have to go with a tower option so I can adjust it higher than normal to still see under it.

Seems to be quite a bit smaller than the 'normal' ski boat mirrors...

How does the field of vision compare between them?

Just to confirm, I got this combo today and it works great.
