Rubbish!  Time owned: more than 12 months
Looks good but performs badly in the rain.
Seems to leak like a sieve and fills up with water and/or condensation.
In the dry it will happily perform at 1.2:1 but wait until the weather changes then you can sit and watch the SWR rise.
Mine regularly topped in excess of 5:1 because it had got around half a glass of water in it.
I've stripped it down and rebuilt it twice now, adding masses of waterproofing, sealant and tape and STILL the damn thing gets full of water.
Avoid unless its all you can get your hands on. 
Product is in production.
