Re: ADM saddle for Mach1GTO

The current ADM D-series dual saddle combinations are effectively clones of the Robin Casaday saddle.

If you can find the old Robin Casady saddles and tandem bars (no longer made sadly) on the used market I would recommend getting some as they are a step above anything else I've tried.

The Losmandy dual scope saddle works fine on my Mach1.  I see no reason why the ADM wouldn’t work.

But that said, I replaced the standard short AP two-clamp dovetail on my Mach1 for AP’s much longer and solid three clamp one.  I don’t think I’d trust any dual scope saddle on the short AP dovetail.

Hi, I'm almost about pulling trigger to new mach1gto. Question is how ADM dual saddle for the mount is. Does anyone use it? May I ask pros and cons?  I already have ADM dual saddle for my AVX and not sure that I could reuse it with just  buying proper adapter.
