[TowerTalk] Beam Recommendation Wanted

I've just joined this reflector and would like to ask for a
recommendation for a tri-band beam to fit within a constrained turning

I need to maintain a turning radius of about 16 feet to clear a property
line. The Cushcraft A3S and the Hy-Gain TH3 do this. These are very old
design beams. Is there anything better today that meets, or comes close,
to the 16-foot turning radius?

I really have considered the Force 12 C3. It's a little long (19.5 ft)
in radius, though. Is its performance so much better than the A3S or TH3
to make it worth the risk of edging over the property line at 70 feet

I'm in the Los Angeles area--no snow, etc. I'm more of a ragchewer than
a DX chaser.

Any other suggestions?
