Best Tower Mirror Arm for G3.5

Recommended Posts

sjj755

I’m looking to buy a mirror tower arm for my 2017 22MXZ.

The Nice-Rack seems to be a good option.

Any advice would be appreciated...

Thanks!

I have the same mirror arm, but to fold it up when driving it goes up sideways into the middle of the walkthrough.  The Nice rack would be the best, but what they want for it is highway robbery.  If you hold tight, my buddy at Uptice.com is working on a new design that will be quite a bit cheaper than the Nice option.

We got the NiceRack last year and we love it!  Not cheap, but well made for sure.

Skip it, save the money and stay with a windshield mounted mirror. I hate the tower  mirror on my g3 tower. It is always right where you think your head should be when it is folded in. If you have to drop the tower, mirror has to come off (or let it damage your dash) and that tiny washer that keeps it locked in place, loves to magically disappear every time you pull the mirror off. Don’t ask me how I really feel...

None of these concerns with a Nice-Rack. Look them up and see.

You have same boat as me.  I bought this mirror arm and can’t see anything with it.

the Bimini is in the way.  Best I can see is knees to ankles wakesurfing.  Can’t see to position it correctly.  When I’m flat in the water it seems great but the second that bows goes up mirror has to be tiled and bad view.   
 

how to you have yours positioned?  Must be different than mine.

I think you need to play with the positioning of the arm until it’s close to what you want, then you can fine tune the mirror itself.  Once we got ours dialed in It’s been great and we don’t mess with it.

Looks like for 2021 they redesigned the factory tower arm and I believe it now pivots.
