Topband: Hairpin match to inverted L?

The other day a ham friend suggested using a coil ("hairpin") to match 
the low impedance of a well-radialed inverted L to 50-ohm coax.  This 
struck me as a potentially-attractive alternative to a series vacuum 
capacitor, but I don't know enough to evaluate it. Thoughts?
