Listen bubba ... don't make me take a load to SoCal just to thump ya ole friend...The "best" is dependent on your application and needs. I run the Comet CA-2X4SR on my Jeep and RV...it makes me happy. At the home shack, I run a Comet GP9
I appreciate the input though! I know everybody has their opinion on whats 'best' as well as for different circumstances whats good for one isn't for another. Mostly looking for a starting point to help narrow down the massive offerings that are out there on the market currently.
