The highest quality wire antenna I have ever used   Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The components and construction of the G Whip receive only antenna including the magnetic balun is the best I have seen in my 35 years of radio. The very special balun combined with the mil spec kevlar wire and s/steel hardware makes an exceptional product. I have been using it every day for a couple of weeks and I've found the performance to be excellent, with the best all-band performance without a tuner that I have ever heard from a wire approx. 20m long. The balun box has a built-in static discharge system which is a nice touch. In my email exchanges with Geoff (G4ICD)at G Whip I was pleased with his friendly and helpful manner. I unreservedly recommend G Whip antennas to anyone looking for the very highest performance and engineering standards. They have a wide range of types too, including resonant end feds, Windoms and doublets.
