Quality product  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Bought for a quad, price is very fair, I tried other 2:1 baluns but just did not make the cut.
High quality product and build quality is excellent.
For about $100 this will work for any application.

GREAT balun!!!  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I have a Home-Brew LPDA, covering 14 to 30 MHZ. It was designed for 100 ohm feed point. While waiting for the balun, the antenna was installed with a coiled coax choke balun. The resultant match was not the best. When the balun arrived and installed the match fell right in to where it was supposed to be. ALL bands from 20 to 10 meters were under 2:1 swr. The balun itself is built rugged with nice construction. I have no doubt at all that it will last many years. This is the second B.D. balun I have and will buy from Bob at B.D. again if I have need. E-mails with Bob at B.D. helped to determine that this was what I needed. He is quick to respond and easy to work with. You won't be disappointed.
