I depends on where you are mounting it.
The balzout mount is great but niot for all applications.
I have a dek-it mount for my 12 that mounts over the foot control for my tm on the bow.
I have a RAM mount on the side of my console that works great and will tilt at any angle.
I had a precision sonar mount for my last boat on the front of the console
