I need to get the bar ends farther out. I have a little room for the pads still
The mono plug in reduces the arm pad reach? It would not affect the actual extension max reach, since you could use a long USE, TriRig, 51 SpeedShop, or Zipp extension.
If you are still looking for more, your bike is too small or you're too far forward.

A long mono bar and far stem, thatâ€™s a lot of reach! I have a short mono 3/4 maxed out on a mid far stem and I thought my reach was rather long !
It may be a lot of reach for you individually, but it really isn't that much reach for some of us. The SC has a very flexible fit system but the achilles heel is the extension reach.
I'm traveling now, but IIRC you gain just under a centimeter of reach by reversing the little tilt piece. You do lose the ability to use the set screw adjustment to lock in your tilt.
With regard to the plug in, I've never used it, but even though you lose some of the reach adjustment in the slotted section, if you choose relatively long extensions you should be able to more than make up for that. Extensions vary widely in length; for instance Hed are only 305, while Tririg are 400. That's a big difference.

The tips might flex the tiniest bit, but it's not a part of the bars you yank hard on anyway.
