I hope you are not feeding a grounded vertical directly with a balanced
line! The line will almost certainly radiate like crazy!

Open wire line should be low enough loss no matter what the SWR is, IF you
can solve the balance problem at the antenna. A choke type balun would work
for that end of the system.
I don't understand why the antenna measured 100 ohms on a 1/4 wl vertical,
that indicates the antenna or analyzer has something very wrong or very
strange going on.
