Of course,  the KT has a  good F/B also;  that makes a big difference
in your perceived comparison to a dipole.  That is,  even without "high"
gain,  you do hear the DX better as noise from the sides/rear is down
a good bit from what would be picked up with a dipole or vertical.

We do better than some think with just a "few" dbd gain.

PS:  My tribndr is a Mosley TA-34-XL,  and it is sure better than any
of my wires,  including 600 foot leg V-beams,  but the V's form
no useful pattern for me on the tri bands.  Have been fascinated by
the data/comparisons given in Feb and March CQ-Contest re: the 
vetical antenna types,  elevated radials,  et al, by the 6Y4A
expeditioners.  Amazing performance 160 thru 10 meters!
