Astonishing performance!  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
What an astonishing antenna! It's a little pricey but I couldn't resist after reading about it in QST. The machining and mill work justifies the price. I wasn't expecting great performance but the Fly Rod Vertical out-performs any dipole I've ever used in the woods!

I got the 80 meter option and set-up the antenna in my back yard. It out-performs my dipole up 45 feet for DX signals!! It falls short for NVIS but I guess that's the nature of vertical antennas.

In summary, a great performing portable vertical but you'll pay for the privilege.
