What advantage(s) does the ADM V series saddle have over the Ioptron stock "puck" style saddle for the Ioptron Minitower II mount? Is it worth the extra $120?

 

Thanks,

 

Bob

A non-marring clamp style Saddle with two knobs as opposed to the single divot type locking knob.

I'm not sure on your mount, but on mine the ADM gives me a much longer mounting surface which I feel increases stability.
