Having had a Skyhawk in the air for almost two yeas I can say it works
great.  It went together quite nicely with no problems with any of the
tubing.  Have a nice rivet gun and get busy!  Have absolutely no problems
with any part of the antenna.

And yes it seems to work very very well, with SWR plots are they advertise.
I would recommend it highly.

 I  do not own one but have installed  a few. The first feed design and the
2nd design, The antenna is sound mechanically is well balanced and exhibited
a VSWR plot  reflective to it's published design. As with any antenna
manufacture there are those who swear by this or that antenna and those who
swear at that same one.
Steve K7LXC has a publication with evaluated tri band antennas,, Not sure if
the  Sky Hawk was in the mix.
 So I  just add my experience to the Mechanical design, the ability to mount
on tic rings and achieve a balance  and it's representation to it's  printed
.. it gets an  " A "
