Firestick firefly 4' antenna

BRIEF:
Lightweight, Easy-tune 'bare-hands tunable tip', High-performance coil design, Flexible fiberglass tube

DETAIL:
The "FL" Series antennas are the performance leader of lightweight top-loaded CB antennas. Each is approximately 40% lighter than the equivalent length Firestik II antenna. From the perspective of mount stress, the lighter materials and reduced wind drag of the "FL" antennas reduces stress by more than 60%. A 4-foot FireFly will easily perform on a mount that is designed for antennas 3-foot or less. At the top of every "FL" antenna you will find our patented tunable-tip. Besides making tuning a snap, the design broadens the antennas bandwidth and increases its power handling capabilities. All "FL" antennas are compatible with autos, trucks, vans, motorcycles and ATV's in a single antenna configuration when metallic ground plane is available. Or, they may be used in dual (co-phased) configuration on any vehicle made from any type of material. Like all CB antennas, the "FL" antennas should be fine-tuned (SWR) in their final mounting location. If you have ever tuned a non-tunable tip antenna, you will have a real appreciation for the "FL" antennas. In short, tuning is as easy as popping off the tip and turning the adjustment screw up or down as needed. All "FL" antennas exceed the requirements of any CB radio, new or old. Aside from the hi-performance loading coil that maximizes the transmit/receive functions of your CB, these top-loaded antennas will also receive the NOAA emergency weather alert and national weather broadcasts for radios with those features.

All "FL" antennas are 100% American made with 100% American materials. To maintain a balance between flexibility and ruggedness, we use a custom blended, glass fiber reinforced tube. Each is wound with double insulated copper wire to prevent the oxidation and shorted windings often found on non-Firestik antennas. The tunable tip mechanism is made from rust-proof brass and has a rubber o-ring to hold the adjuster in place after tuning. Our 3/8"-24 threaded base will fit all Firestik mounts and accessories. Each antenna is covered with a static reducing, water-tight sleeve containing UV and pigment stabilizers. For peek performance we recommend that you use one of our Fire-Flex or RoadPal coaxial cables with these antennas.

All "FL" series antennas are factory bench tested for resonant frequency and overall quality. They are available in black, red or white with a black tip.

The antenna works good and looks great on the jeep. It is mounted to the rear bumper.

Great antenna, with easy adjustments to tune the SWR. Mounted easily with a quick disconnect, and has held up to many a tree branch.

Always have used Firestik, though I am positive there are better brands out there. Completely tunable.

looks cool, but poor signal.
might just need dialed in better, even though they claim no dialing in is necessary.

I just recently installed it. I havent had a chance to use it yet. But I do like the options you have in mounting locations.
