This is a well made mount, but there is something you should be aware of before you buy this... This does NOT fit in the standard Takahashi style circular recess found on most Tak mounts and Tak-compatible saddle plates. The holes line up perfectly but if you have a mounting surface with the standard Takahashi circular recessed area, this will straddle over the recess. It does NOT fit inside the recess, which significantly reduces the contact area with the mounting surface. Even the instruction manual for the FS-60CB is incorrect in its depiction of how this tube holder is supposed to attach to a Tak style mount. This is a rather significant disappointment for me, given that I bought this more expensive, Tak brand tube holder for my FS-60CB and it isn't truly compatible with Tak style mount plates.
