Product Reviews

“First and foremost, I am not sponsored or paid by Precision Sonar and bought the product just like everyone else. I had never met Randy until becoming a customer. That said, the craftsmanship and attention to detail is of the highest caliber you will find in the business. I could not be happier with how the system came together on my Legend V20. The mount puts the 12’s at my fingertips and have complete flexibility on the angle I want. No more sun glare. The top of the units are below the windshield so they are protected which allows me to see over with no problem. The other big selling factor for me was that the “Smart Bracket” reduces vibration over using a ram mount or the factory bracket. It is rock solid!! If you are in the market for the absolute best mounting system for your electronics, you owe it to yourself to check out Precision Sonar. Product & Service at it’s best!”

“I bought a couple of new Lowrance units and I decided to use the SmartBracket Console Mounting System after doing some research and speaking with Randy. Randy doesn’t hold back any of his expertise and because of his experience and knowledge (and tips) that he shared with me, it was a no brainer for me to choose those mounts. The product itself is top notch and built to last. I love the fit and finish. Also I ordered and installed the wheel spacer on my steering column because I have no tilt on my boat. Here are a few pictures of the mounts themselves to try and give people an idea of the strength, fit and finish of the mounts”

“The SmartBracket Console Mounting System works great on My 2006 Bass Cat Cougar. This user friendly design delivers the functionality required to compliment the high definition electronics available to us. The product speaks for itself. It is a direct reflection of the years of experience that Randy has invested helping others fish smarter!”

“I wanted to upgrade my HDS 8 to a touch 9 on my Bass Cat Eyra but since I already had a hole cut in my console with the flush mount 8, I was struggling to find just the right mounting system. All I can say is WOW!!! This SmartBracket Mounting System is just what I needed; a well thought out, extremely strong system that looks really good on my boat. I am most impressed with the security features that were put in to the design. A thief would think twice once they get a look at this mount. It is strong enough that I could do chin-ups on it. The bracket also places your unit closer to the steering wheel allowing you to access all the functions easily while still keeping hands on the wheel. I plan to use this bracket on all my future boats.”

“I’ve been using the SmartBracket Mounting System for some time now. My boat was the first Phoenix install, and I love the mounting system. It’s a rock solid install, I can tilt my graphs down so there is no glare from the sun while spending long days scanning ledges and I’ve used both an HDS 9 Touch and HDS 12 Touch on the bracket. The HDS 12 does not block my view ahead of me on this bracket while running down the lake and it’s within fingers reach of my steering wheel. It’s the perfect setup for the serious marine electronics savvy angler.”

“My Ranger Aluminum RT188 came with the basic low-end sonar unit. I wanted to upgrade to a unit with more features and a bigger screen and settled on the HDS9 Touch Screen unit but it wouldn’t fit in the console. I saw photos of the SmartBracket Mounting System on BBC and it got such great reviews I decided to order one. I couldn’t be happier. The product is way better than advertised, easy to install and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.”

Thanks for the mounts. They are very well built and fit like a glove. Definitely exceeded my expectations. My dealer was also highly impressed. Here they are on my 2014 phoenix 920xp.

“First of all let me say that I really like my Nitro Z8. I felt it was the best boat out there for the money but if I had a complaint at it would be the location of my sonar unit, which is flush mounted in the console. With the factory set up screen glare is a problem and I had to scoot forward to the edge of the seat to view the screen and reach the buttons. Not anymore. I came across a post on Bass Boat Central on the NITRO board that showed Installation photos of the SmartBracket Console Mounting System. I contacted Kick’n Bass Guide Service and ordered the product. The install was simple. Since then I have shown others in my bass club the product and they have also purchased. The SmartBracket Console Mounting System is a extremely well made product and I am very happy with my purchase.”

“I purchased a new Skeeter FX 21 earlier this year.  I really love the boat but at 6’ 4” it’s a hassle for me to bend over to see the touch screen.  Having to run my hand thru and over the steering wheel to use the unit was a problem too.  I looked at all the mounting systems out there and I settled on this one because of the height adjustment and being able to position the screen to get rid of the screen glare.  I’m a machinist by trade so I know quality workmanship and materials.  I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and workmanship of the product.  The SmartBracket Mounting System was better than advertised.”

“I did A LOT of research on all the available mounts, and after careful consideration I chose the SmartBracket Console Mounting system. The Hammertone finish really looks sharp and the whole system looks great with my boat plus it was a pretty good value.

“And a special thanks to Randy…great customer service. ”


— Stephen Phillips | Port Arthur, TX

“Thought I’d share a picture of my recent install of my SmartBracket Console Mounting System and give Randy a shout out for a great product. I don’t have the tilt steering wheel, so I used the steering wheel spacer and it worked out nicely. Check out this mount if you’re looking for one.”

“I purchased a Ranger 518c with a HDS 10 flush mounted. I really like my boat but the first thing I noticed was how difficult it was to see my sonar unit over the steering wheel. Also I had to almost put my hand through the steering wheel to use the sonar unit. Once I started looking around I came across the SmartBracket Mounting System. The adjustable feature of the bracket system puts the sonar unit in just the right location so it’s easy to see the screen plus the soft keys are right at my fingertips. It literally feels indestructible; it’s not going to shift in rough water. In my opinion it’s the best mounting system out there.”
