I acquired a Dr Arm mandolin armrest on trade for McClung XL armrest. Nothing wrong with the Dr Arm, it just would not fit the customer’s rounded edges of their mandolin. I decided to do a comparison between the two armrests.
The Dr Arm is 5 1/4” x 1 1/4”. The McClung XL is 4 1/2” x 1 1/4”. Our regular McClung armrest is 4” x 1 1/8”. I’ve some customers think the regular McClung is too large. Go figure.
The Dr Arm is packaged really nice. The installation instructions are printed, with photos, on the packaging.
The Dr Arm design is brilliant. Nice smooth rubbed look finish, it appears to be CNC prescion and uses Hill viola hardware.
The Dr Arm used in this comparison is Curly Maple with a Nitro Matte finish. It retails for $99. I think it’s a good product.
