    antenna works as advertised however an optional solderless connector would have aided installation without the added cost of a torch solder or buying your own connector.

    Quick shipping. Product arrived no problems. Antenna works well on my Maverick Master Angler boat. Old antenna was the same. Black cap on top cracked from sun exposure I suspect and can not be replaced. Had to buy whole antenna. Have taped the black cap on the new one with silicone tape to help keep the sun from damaging it.
