    2 of 5 Could not add the extensions January 18, 2023
    Reviewer: Randolph Baron from Cathedral City, CA United States  
    I was hoping this minipier would add 8 inches to the height of my mount on the carbon fiber mount.  In order to do so you must separate the two pieces of the pier.  They are bolted together so incredibly tightly that I was only able to remove 2 out of the 3 bolts, and that with extreme effort. The third was so tight that my Allen wrench stripped the head of the bolt before the bolt would budge.  So I replaced the two bolts I was able to remove and I am using it as a 5.5" pier.  As a 5.5" pier it works well but what a disappointment that I was not able to add the additional 2.5" components so as to have an 8" pier.

    5 of 5 Quick service June 11, 2022
    Reviewer: Raymond Thiessen from NORRIS, TN United States  
    Ordered it on Thursday, received it Saturday morning, unbelievable. I'm 6' tall, this 8" extension pier puts the scope at the perfect height for me on the CEM26. It also puts it high enough to see above the obstruction and have a clear shot at Polaris now, which is why I had purchased it. Quality is better than I expected. Its solid, bolted right up, also lighter than it looks. Highly recommend it.
