American made proven high-performance design that will withstand 3000 watts. The antenna is made from a rugged solid fiberglass core. The S7 SkipShooter antenna has a flexible braid connection that reduces the chance of breakage when the antenna contacts objects while the vehicle is in motion.
All SkipShooter antennas are made in America with all American made components. Each S7 antenna is wound with 20 gauge insulated wire to prevent the windings from shorting out.
SkipShooter antennas are the most durable wire-wound antennas on the market. The Skipshooter design with the flexible braid to eliminate breakage has been a proven performer since 1967.
The SkipShooter antennas are compatible with autos, trucks, vans, motorcycles and ATVs. All SkipShooter antennas may be used in a single antenna configuration when a metallic ground is available. All SkipShooter antennas may be used in a dual (co-phased) configuration on any vehicle made from any type of material.
The tuning rod on all SkipShooter antennas are easily accessible if tuning is needed.
The 3/8-24 threaded base is made out of brass, is plated with a shiny nickel finish, and fits all standard antenna mounts. Each antenna is covered with a water tight sleeve.

I bought this as a option for when I have to go into area that I’m afraid of my predator 10k getting stolen. My first thought was that it seemed quality built. I installed it into my Tram triple mag mount and quickly tuned it. I then decided to really try it out and called a friend about 20 miles away on a base and made a contact of S-5 and my 10k did the same! Then I tried with my TS-667v amp and put about 500 watts through it and SWR stayed stable at 1.1 and antenna did not get warm. I left it on and used it about a week and I’m actually impressed by it. I would recommend it but keep in mind it is a 7’ antenna and will hit stuff.
