Decide which works best for you.
One of the antennas is probably optimized for gain while the other is optimized for better f/b and f/s ratios (can't optimize both on the same antenna). Before you go randomly adding length to the reflector, changing the spacing, or monkeying around with either of the antennas, you'd probably better get the software so you have a better idea of what you're doing.
what band(s) do you want to operate?
as a general rule a mono bander is better than a tri-bander on ONE particular band, but, the tri bander is better overall on more than one band.
the reflector (another general rule) should be about 5% longer than the radiator

POWER MASTER BEAMS
*No Measuring - Pre- Drilled - Color Coded
*Heavy Duty Construction
*Stainless Steel Hardware
*Two Year Warranty
"Power-Master" Beams are full-sized arrays, each designed for operation on a single band -- Mosley A-311, eleven meter three element, Mosley A-411, eleven meter four element, Mosley A-511, eleven meter five element.
Superlative performance and construction characterizes each beam to insure satisfaction under the most adverse conditions.
Antennas are 100% rust proof. Stainless steel hardware, high-impact polystyrene insulators with drawn, seamless, aluminum elements & boom will provide many additional years of trouble-free operation. Low SWR over entire bandwidth. Maximum gain on all bands with an operating capacity well over 1 KW. All "Power-Master" antennas are fed with 52 ohm coax using the famous "Mosley-Match".
