I use the swing arm because I use my FF on a couple of my yaks. I also like the swing arm because if the transducer does hit something it swings out of the way. In the scupper it won't give. It does make for bigger obstacle on my left side but I've done that for several years now and never got hung up on it. What I did was get a black cutting board, cut it smaller, and mounted both the FF and swing arm to it. It mounts on gear tracks so I can easily take it on and off as one unit. That's nice when transporting so you can lock it in your vehicle.
