Looking good and working good do not always go together!!
(At least in my experience)
I think that even the ATAS 120 would be better than this particular antenna. Not exactly stealth, but, it would have some chance of radiating a signal better. I saw plenty of screwdriver antennas
and others at a hamfest in Belton Texas yesterday. Some were huge and others, (like the Little Tarheel II) were not that intrusive at all. But, if the name of the game is getting the most performance for your money, a large, antenna is hard to beat. But, something is better than
nothing if you are wanting to get on the air mobile.
