bigger/better mirror?

I'm looking for a better mirror than the stock one that is on my 2009 X14. I already have the arm that mounts to the tower, but I'd like a mirror that is convex and provides more rear vision (it'd be nice to see the skier at all times, not just when they are crossing the wake).

Any recommendations? Can I get a mirror without the arm that will slide right on my existing arm?

A lot of people on here seem to recomend the PTM Edge Mirrors. I don't have one myself yet but They do look nice.

Any of their mirrors seem to be an upgrade to our stock ones, and I think THIS PART is what we'd need to attach one of the PTM mirrors to our stock arms.

I have the CIPA 01600 - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
It is the least expensive 180deg view mirror I could find. I am happy with it.

I bought a tower arm mount and adapter here-

Are y'all running the VR100 or 140? There is a significant price difference, but the 140 is also quite a bit bigger.

Switched from 100 to 140 with new boat and love it. Wouldn't go back. I was worried it was too big, would block vision etc - but it hasn't.

Just clicked order on the VR140 and mount! Looking forward to not having to turn my head around to see the kids on the tube or my buddies on the course!
