650.00 shipped,my antenna get the same signal reports as the 3 el  steppir 
every time,and maybe the c31xr has a small margin of gain over both  the IR and 
mosley just because of it's much larger boom and more  here you 
have two antennas which preform equally,the difference is the stepp  ir cost 
1700.00 thats 1100.00 more than the mosley,by the way my mosley is  around 30 
year old in the air.Still working like new.Had to change the coax a  few times 
and clean the traps which were really clean you make the  decision 
an antenna that does not require a tuner in line but will  definatley have 
service issues in 5-10 years(How much is a motor?)or a mosley  you put up and 
forget its there for 30+ years and save the 1100.00 towards a  new amp or 
vacation.I rest my case..

    But not very convincingly.  
    According to our yagi comparison report, here are  the published 
REPEATABLE gain results of the C3 and the TA-33:
                20M    15M    10M
C3           3.3        4.3    2.7
TA-33      1.2        2.3    1.3
    At least this Mosley had gain, albeit not much;  the other Mosley PRO 
antennas we tested had NEGATIVE gain on some bands.
