Good performer  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
The antenna performs well and puts a strong signal out on all bands at about 10ft AGL and 50w and have always had consistent great reports back.

Sturdy and easy to assemble it has survived several strong gales.

The reason i gave it 4 stars
1. as others have said the antenna requires you to water proof it yourself otherwise it will suffer problems from water ingress into the traps but is easily remedied with some self amalgamating tape.

2. Altho i have got a good SWR on 10m and 15m on 20 and especially 40m the SWR was to high despite many attempts at adjusting the antenna but with the help of the ATU it still preformed very well.

3. At around 300 it seems a little pricey considering there are other antennas costing considerably less with similar performance e.g. i am currently using a Sirio 827 at my new QTH which preforms comparable on all bands and build quality.  
Product is in production.
