For what it's worth...

Feedback from close friends on DXpeditions that used the Cushcraft A-3WS
was very good.  Based on the design, I would expect the HyGain beam to be 

I have no experience with the Force 12.

I have used rotatable aluminum dipoles on these bands at good heights 
(55-75 feet) and am very pleased with their performance.  If you want, I can
provide design information for a dual-band dipole (single feedline).
