Default Anyone made a better fitting armrest for the equinox?

I'm thinking about how to incorporate an armrest like the one on the Fisher F75 onto the equinox. It has a snug fit against my arm and is adjustable on the sides. I am looking for suggestions or ideas.
Maybe there is something aftermarket that I don't know about.

Thanks. H.H.

Have you ever considered a 3-D printer? You can get a good one for around $200 these days. With free (for student/hobby use) CAD software like Fusion 360, you can literally design and make just about anything you can imagine. There are multi-thousands of free designs online now. From simple to extremely complex designs. You can print with very accurate dimensions.

And some of the plastics you can print with are VERY strong. You can print with PLA, ABS,Nylon, Polycarbonate, flexible filaments etc.

Super fun hobby.
