It's extra tough for use on hard tops, T-tops, radar arches, or wherever its extra resistance to high winds and high speeds is welcome.

This antenna is replacing a small 3' whip antenna. After reading reviews, I decided to go with this one. Feels very well made. Easy to install and comes complete with the PL259 Connecter. !an't wait to take it offshore.
I have to give a shout out to Tackle Directs customer service as well. Incredible service. Thank you TD!
