Bottom line is to use what works for you. We've heard both sides from happy
and satisfied users that continue to utilize both. I too can be dazzled my
numbers but the bottom line is to use what works....after all,
aerodynamically a bumblebee can't fly....apparently they're too busy flying

Thanks for everyone's comments. I think will probably end up purchasing both
and using them on a couple passes and then deciding which one would be
better for me and returning the other. Both companies offer refunds, so that
may be the best route for me. I just can't get over the fact that I've
talked to and read what quite a few hams have had to say regarding the
arrow, and I can't see why they would use one for multiple years if it was
so horrible, so that leads me to think I may like it better, but we'll see!
