PTM Edge mirror

Believe I'm going to take advantage of the PTM Edge group discount and am considering the larger PRX-100 PRO, but concerned whether the 6″ x 14″ will fit between the dash and throttle of my R23 when folded. I cover nightly given my white interior, so would like to keep the process simpler by not having to remove the mirror from the support.

I read the posts from the previous sale and the only folded PRO pic was cwag911's, but on a different model boat. Unishot mentioned the transition to a PRO didn't work for his configuration due to size. The non-PRO version looked to tuck in nicely in all pics.

Another option would be the UCX-17 PRO which permanently mounts to the fiberglass. Looks like it would sit higher for better viability, plus stow just in front of the windshield.

Soooo... Any UCX-17 PRO user input, or raised helm "R" owners have issues stowing the PRX-100 Pro?

Thanks!

The mirror itself will rotate in either direction to give you the clearance you need.....

I too have an R23 and debating both models - I am leaning to the prx 100. Money isn’t a reason. My main purpose for a mirror is rear traffic which I feel the smaller mirror is adequate and looks better imo. A small portion of the mirror would be to assist in our tubing adventures and I feel the pro would be better in this regard. However, I am estimating only 10-15% of my time will be used tubing. My opinion is the non pro is a better fit for me but I’m interested also in actual user opinions.

The PRO doesn't fit because the mirror doesn't rotate enough to be out of the way when stowed?

I just always took mine off. It's one knob nut. Once I launched and backed away from the ramp, let the motor idle a minute while I get all the gear and people and stereo setup, speaker suits off, and attach mirror. I towed everywhere, so preferred not having my mirror on to possibly get scratched. Wrapped it in a microfiber towel under the helm.

This is how my mirror folds down and fits between the throttle and helm. 5BF184E4-9C58-4BD0-B96D-75B7E0DAA97C.jpeg

Don't forget you can also fold it forward. That is how I do mine, as it tucks nicely between the starboard lounger and the windscreen.
