I did some searching but haven't found any recent results. Does anyone here have up to date experience with the Perrin or Cravenspeed stubbies?

I've had a Perrin for years from RallySport Direct. Love it. I have the 2" version.

I had the 2" perrin for about 6 months. I loved the look, but eventually went back to the oem. The reception dropped to much for me. I live in ohio surrounded by hills, so that may have been against me. Others havent noticed as much of a change. It may work out just fine for you.

I rarely listen to radio. Usually Pandora or music off my USB drive. When I do I haven't noticed any loss. Each area is different though.

Yeah not too worried about AM/FM but mainly nav.

Have the 2" CravenSpeed Stubby Jr. Radio barely impacted since I'm in an urban area. If more rural, go with the 4" version. For road trips, swap the OEM antenna back in.

It only swaps out the AM/FM portion of the antenna. Nav/SAT is in the base unit and unaffected by this mod.

Awesome. I ended up ordering the Perrin 4". I can't justify 90 on the shark fin. Thanks guys.

Wanted a shark fin, ended up with a Perrin because like you, I didn't want to spend $90. I usually listen to Spotify or my iPod anyways so reception loss wasn't a huge deal, but I only had a slight drop in reception on one station so I'm happy with it.

What? Focus ST Shop is a sponsor here.

Focus ST Shop
Trust me, I'm fully aware they're a sponser here lol.

I clicked the link and it was a redirect page for ads that did a drive by BEFORE getting to focusstshop.com so my works filter immediately blocked the redirect from running.
