A magical antenna so to speak.
There are no magical antennas. If one sounds like magic, it is an illusion. It would work well only if elevated and only on the bands where a hamstick is an efficient radiator, i.e. 20m-10m.
Using a hamstick for a counterpoise on 80m or 40m is somewhat like having one buried radial as the efficiency of an 80m hamstick is in the ballpark of 1%. The beauty of two 1/4WL elevated radials physically opposing each other is that a lot of the RF radiated by each radial is canceled by the other radial and returned to the system to be radiated by the vertical radiating element. An 80m or 40m hamstick radial cannot do that.
