Is anyone using this with 120mm binoculars? Is it a good mount vs the fork mounts?

Same procedure, probably even worse because of the higher weight and the axle being further away from the center of gravity

I have not yet read of anyone using the 120mm center mount. Good or bad. I may have missed a post somewhere.
