Bob,
That really isn’t too bad for a one off at least. It could very easily be improved on and probably end up being a pretty decent product that could be mass produced for the RV10 without a lot of work.
A block of black Delrin for the block,
Made much smaller and cut to both clamp around the bar and hold the dowel all in one piece. Then a dowel made of the same or similar black plastic, or even aluminum painted, and some nice smoked plexi attached, all with black screws.
The only downside at that point over some of the others would be that by center mounting you can’t swing them to the side window.
Anyway, with a little effort that could be tweaked and made to not even look much like a DIY system.
The BlueSky ones may still be lighter, and swivel both ways and only require one mounting hole though. So it’s at least a more expensive but not over the top option.
Tim

Thanks Tim. Main point I wanted to make was that the $8 each (I looked up the price) tinted plexi from ACS is actually a good product to start from. I can’t detect any optical distortion in it. But the original suction cup mounting won’t hold inverted. I keep extra ones in the seat pocket with their suction cups still attached, for myself and passengers to use on the side windows.
How do I make photos more easily visible?

I think a DIY/lower cost effort is good development.

I would also recommend the Blue Sky visors which I've installed and
flown with for 1,000 hours.  Nice design, reasonable $$ but still
pricey.  They work, well. However, do spend some time with the mounting
point.  Things need to be square and tight - takes a bit of effort given
that nothing is tight or square around those confounded #$$%#!! doors.

With that said, this thread just caused me to blow off some $$$ on the
Rosens.  I did not spend quite enough time with that single point mount
and now my co-pilot visor tends to sag in bumps.  Both require a bit of
handling when setting them in extreme but very useful positions.  I'm
tired of fooling with something that is always in sight and directly in
my line of vision.  The 2 point mounts on the Rosens would seem to
alleviate my mounting issue. Otherwise I hope they work in a way
commensurate with the price.

At some point, I will have a pair of used Blue Skies that work to get
rid of.

I’ve got the visors that Blue Sky make specifically for the RV10 and would recommend them. They are made well and they fit and work extremely well, and look good. Fitting was simple with each side only needing one hole in the pillar and secured by the one screw. After the initial fit I applied release agent to the square mounting peg and built up around the peg about 3/4inch with a epoxy/flox mix which gave more security and support to the mount and also a more finished look, IMHO Cheers from Western Australia
