Whats the difference in these ram mounts

Recommended Posts

Hi All...

 

I need to get a ram mount for a hook 7...looking on amazon I see two that seem to be identical. 

 

Can someone tell me what the difference is?? I looked on Rams site and I could only find the 111u and not the 111.

 

For $29

For $43

Seems that the ball on the cheaper one is 1'' not 1.5'' like the other. Not sure what the implications are.

1" Ball is too small for 7" display.

 

1.5 should work or look for something else?

I think 1.5" is OK. Is there a windshield in front of the MFD? Makes it better but you should be good with 1.5".

My Helix 9 has a significantly larger ball than 1.5 inches, I believe.  I haven't measured it, but it is very substantial. My Helix 7 is much lighter and I think it has one of the Rams you are showing.  A dealer should be able to clarify.

 

But it is clear to me that the bigger units need really substantial Rams.

I went with the bigger one. It was the one that was recommended by bps and ram...
