not worth the match to light the dynamite to blow it to hexx  Time owned: more than 12 months
Had a 75 meter inverted vee on my tower, with a W2AU balun. The tower was about 3 feet from a window. Ran an SB220 amp at the time, so figure about 1200-1300 watts PEP.
One night saw glowing sparks raining down just outside window. Came to find it was the W2AU balun, on fire. SWR was 1.1:1.
Lately, had two W2AU end insulators fail and with each failure, dropped my home brew SuperLoop 80 to the ground. Too soft a material for an end insulator.
Do they make anything that works? 
Product is in production.
