High SWR, low quality  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Picked up a MFJ 40 meter whip antenna and one of these adaptors for the FT-817.

Should have checked it out at the store. Installed it and first thing 3:1+ SWR is the lowest I could get. Noise level was 8+ and complete unusable. On removal, the BNC portion broke off of the base where the PL-259 is attached. This revealed a cold solder joint on the BNC connector.

Better off just getting a 90 deg molded PL-259 right angle adaptor and a PL-259 to BNC adaptor from Crap Shack...MUCH more solid and the nearly the same price.
