Maybe I am missing something here? Why would anyone want to use a center
connector on a dipole with a PL259 coax connector? Seems like you create
a lot more problems keeping water out of the coax with that kind of
connector hanging out there. And you pay money for it.|
Why not use a regular center insulator with the coax wrapped a turn around it where the end of the coax is pointing down.

The Budwig RF-1 gets my vote. I use 4 of them in an 80m wire array that has very high tension on the center insulator. 7 years so far with no sign of a problem from them.
