I have watched the SWR meter whilke transmitting on my C-3s in very windy 
conditions and at most the SWR change is 1-2 tenths.  Any windier than that 
and I'd be in the cellar, not operating.

The performance of the C-3 is so far above any other small tribander that 
the question isn't really worth considering, IMO.
