When I was looking into multiband verticals about 5 years ago I took  
one look at the GAP website and was quite wary about the pseudo- 
science of their claims.  I got a copy of the K7LXC/N0AX vertical  
report from championradio.com and it had some good comparisons  
between several different types of verticals.  Based on that, I  
looked into the R-8, and later compared that to the AV-640 by Hy-Gain  
(which is quite similar, but without traps).  I have been using the  
AV-640 for about 4 years and am quite pleased (it is for 40-6 meters  
and isn't very effective on 80 and 160, although I have made a few  
contacts on those bands using a tuner).
