    I have it and find it to be an improvement over my old antenna. No scratch at all, even though it’s 2 feet shorter.

    Never heard of such a thing, with my being a .50 gunner from a bygone era I just might pull the trigger on this one, thanks... ;)

    I did get mine Friday and I installed it, I like it just fine but seem pretty easy for some to unscrew it and walk away with it if they so desire... I might should have gotten a dozen of em... ;)

    Looks great but I would be hesitant to drive around a school with it in this day and age. It could cause a problem but good luck.

    When chintzy antennas are banned, only criminals will have chintzy antennas.

    IMO, Do what you want, but that fucker just says snap me off and take me home with you... Then you have to get out the broken stub before you can replace it.

    It does look cool, but I wouldn't want the hassle.

    No troubled childhood here, but thanks for your snarky remark butt-nugget.
