So far, so good September 22, 2014
Reviewer: Michael Shults from Sodus Point, NY  
Needed an extra tough antenna to fly my club pennant (as well as facilitating VHF communications); on my go-fast boat. So far, so good. Unlike the standard antenna, which folded over in short order, this one seems able to stand the punishment.
