Bar end mirrors

Does anyone have experience with these that could provide some input? Are they better than regular mirrors, or just different? How so?

I actually just installed a set on my bike yesterday. They make it much more effortless to see behind you. I enjoy them much more than I did the standard mirrors. I got mine from Amazon for about $12 shipped. They are relatively easy to install also. If you join the street 750/500 group on Facebook you'll see pictures of the parts that came in my kit and the help I received from another street owner.

Ah, so that was you! I did see them and I'm glad they're working for you. Thanks for your input!

Has anyone tried bending the mirror stems a little to give another inch or two of visibility?

Just picked up some bikemaster 7/8 archer oval bar end mirrors. Couldn't seem to get them installed for the life of me. Cut the end of the grip, got rid of the excess glue. Then proceeded to install and couldn't get the mirror to enter the bar end at all. Great looking mirror but not the best design for install. Anyone else been able to get a bikemaster mirror in the bar end? Currently back to stock mirrors with one cut open grip end.
