    Good stuff. Never had a complaint about anything I have bought from them.

    I buy from US Plastic. Their prices are very reasonable.

    I'm only asking because it looks like the same capacitance hat as the Hustler Antenna Logo. I wondered if it was a copy, as well as if I could get more information about it . :)

    It was a great antenna. But it didn't last long. Maybe a SS version would.

    The Hustler and Master Blaster were my inspiration. Mine uses 6 gauge copper and 3/8" stainless.

    It's just something I cobbled together from stainless parts I had laying around.
