In my experience, the A4S runs circles around the TH3. It's also a bit
longer and has a separate, dedicated 10m reflector element not found on the
TH3. "Best" under 40lbs might be difficult to say, but I've had great
experience with the Tennadyne T6 LPDA. 6L on a short boom (12'), covers
14~30 MHz including 12/17m, and works amazingly well for its size. It does
have a larger turning radius than the TH3 or A4S, however, due to the very
long rear element (40').
