The M2 6M7JHV antenna was designed to meet a request from 
Dave Batcho of Las Cruces NM.  He wanted an antenna that would 
perform well in a stacked array.  Dave uses 4 of these in a
2wide x 2high array and he is one of the leading stations on 6m.
He also says a single antenna will perform well.
M2 were impressed with the performance and placed it in the catalogue.
For comments on its durability you could contact Dave at:

M2 also have their 6M7 regular yagi on a 26'9"/ 2"OD boom 
rated at 3 sqft/100mph.
