Performs and clears the garage
I was sceptical, as I'd read mixed reviews of The Stubby, but none that was specific to my M-B Sprinter. I gotta say - it works and looks good. I live very rural and in the mountains. It pulled in the NPR and local station same as before. Out on the highway, it also seems to be without appreciable loss.
I don't know if the M-B base system is just very good (it still got a distant FM station with the stock antenna unscrewed). So, I'd say the Stubby antenna seems about on-par with stock.
4 of 5 stars - I can't go along with the cheesy "stubby" logo - sorry guys but solid black or black on black is a cleaner look and classier.
