CB Antenna choice ?

Is there a difference in performance between a 4 foot Firestik II and a Wilson Flex 4 foot (assuming same mount location, ground, cable etc ) ? Is it just a matter of taste or am I better off with one or the other. Leaning toward the Wilson because of all of the parking garages here in South Florida but if the Firestik is better I can live with a quick disconnect.

Muchas mas gracias

I have a Firestik 4' mounted at about the level of the top of the tub and I can tell you that you'll appreciate the flexibility of the Wilson in those parking garages. I have all but sworn off the parking garages in San Francisco when I'm in the Jeep. I have two antennas and a hi-lift that have to be removed just to park in them. Consequently, I don't take the Jeep to the city much because street parking is almost impossible. If you 'wheel on tight or brushy trails a lot, you'll appreciate the Wilson for the same reasons. Can't speak to the comparison in radiation efficiency. I do like Firestik's FireRing coax though.
