I have to agree, there are better antennas out there than a Firestik (almost any other antenna is much lighter weight for one thing, less stress on the mount).

I have a 66" Francis Hot Rod CB-26 on a triple magnet mount on the roof of mine. Excellent range. Only thing that would be better is a 102" whip, however the height of that starts to get a bit too impractical (I have a spring on mine so when it does hit something such as a low branch or drive-thru overhang, it can flex harmlessly out of the way).




Here's a pic (one of the few I have that the mag mount is (sortof) visible in)
