    Skip Shooter Antennas

    I have been looking, at Skip Shooter antennas. I haven't found, a lot on you-tube. And, was wondering

    if anyone, has used this antenna... that could give an opinion, on them. I currently, use a magnetic

    mount, Wilson 1000. That works really good.

    I was thinking, of getting the 7 footer. But, got to thinking... if it will perform any better, than the Wilson

    1000? The Wilson 1000, is a 62" steel whip. The Skip Shooter, is a 84" fiberglass antenna.

    I would, like any and all opinions, on this antenna decision. Here is a link:

    7' fiberglass antenna..."where do you plan on mounting it?"...That's allot of stiff-antenna to mount on a roof...and any place else, would be a compromise and the antenna won't operate to it's full potential.

    If your going to put a coiled antenna on the roof, and want to go with the 6-7 footers, then you need one that has some flex to it so when it hits something, it doesn't get broke or knocked off...

    Check out the regular single coil Predator 10K, or "lil sweetie" Predator 10K...

    Thanks JesseJamesDallas,

    I appreciate, your time and post.... a lot! To answer your question. My antenna and any future antenna will sit on top of the cab, of my Toyota Tacoma. My Wilson 1000 is probably ~11-12Ft. up in the air.
    Thanks again for your help.

    Here's how I have my Predator 10K mounted on my Tacoma...worked out really well, plus no holes in the roof!

    JesseJamesDallas,

    Thank-you, for the nice pictures. That predator antenna and Toyota Tacoma look great... nice install.

    Is that a 2003 Tacoma? Also, think those rims are sharp looking... what kind are they???

    Never mind... Upon, further inspection. Look's like Toyota rims. I like them.
