I use an Ugly Balun made from rg58 coax on mist of my HF aerials. If you want to see the photographs I have put them on my Callsign website M6JDB
If you can make one uglier than that I will send you a prize !

Spotted ur other questions or problems.
Dipoles in most cases seem to work ok if the legs are bent because of space limits.
you can probably use this method w/v. IN a dipole max I
is at the center, if u get past the midpoint on each side
of the dipole you could droop the ends or send them
another direction (after tying to the anchor poles the
longest length of leg wire that fits the space.)

Keeping the apex high is better then
wire being straight. The angle probably is best more than
95 and less than 120.
Your other ?  about vswr and such depend on the installation.

hope thats clear

73,
