giannibulldog,
Hi! You are getting into an area that has quite a few opinions about how 'good' something is, that will be a real adventure! So just a few thoughts about antennas in general.
An antenna is 'good' if it happens to put a signal where you would like for it to go (radiation pattern). That depends on a couple of things that vary with each individual installation, not just the particular antenna in question (how/where it's mounted, what's around it,etc.). If all of those things are taken into account, THEN the particular antenna being used can be compared to other antennas used in the exact same situation. If part of that 'situation' changes, so do the results of the comparison. That can be either good or bad.
Having said all that, it sort of boils down to just how much difference is expected, and possible. The nearest typical antenna to the one you question is a 5/8 wave, .625 x wavelength. The difference between the two is .015 x wavelength, or about 6 inches. While there will be some slight difference in radiation pattern, it's going to be so small of a difference that it isn't going to make any practical, or useful, difference at all. There will be quite a few opinions about that, get ready!
None of this says anything about how 'good/bad' that 'enforcer.64' is, or if it's still available (no idea). Have fun!

I am sorry for the misunderstanding. What i ment was it is a shame that such a fine antenna is no longer being produced.

hi W5LZ, i agree about what have you told . . . . but i thought somebody had try both antennas and he/she could tell his/her impressions. i had a great antenna "sigma mantova 5" . . . then ( this winter) i had tried a "solarcon imax 2000" and some difference i have seen . . . a little more gain and a better pacification . . . we have tried tha antenna using the same pole , the same rtx, the same pwr . . . so we have tried the performance, so we'll have tried the "enforcer.64" with the others antennas . . . . but, unfortunately, we haven't it . . . for this reason we have asked to you .. . . . ok ???? .. . . thank for every info you'll want tell us (italian cb'ers) i wish you a good day. . . . .......... giannibulldog

gianni,

if you live in italy and are looking for a superior ground plane antenna design then find a dealer who carries the euro version of the SigmaIV, also named LW-150 or similar under the SIRIO Vector 4000 brand name.

you'll forget all about the enforcer and save a bundle on shipping.
