The "Warrior Series" Heavy Duty Gimbal Brackets were designed as a direct replacement for the factory gimbal bracket. These Brackets are made from 1/4" thick aircraft grade aluminum and have the Factory Lowrance plastic teeth inserts.
The "Shorty" version's are made for the Bow use only, these brackets cause the unit to set lower increasing strength and also help driver visibility. The HDS-9 Live Factory gimbal is made from Plastic, so we decided that a heavy duty metal model would work better. We will be looking at doing the Gen 2/ Gen 3/ Carbon version in the near future.
