It seems to me that a 2 inch boom is really too short...

I (along with Scott Neader, KA9FOX, and Murray, WA6USL) have the C4XLD and
it really does the job. It is a nine element (two on 40) yagi on a two inch
boom. If you are both a CW and Phone buff, get the optional 40 meter relay
box and you will be able to cover all of 40 with a 1:1 SWR. 

Semper Fi,

  I am also in the research phase of acquiring a new antenna and 10 - 40
  meters on one boom was one of my requirements.  Force 12 makes 3 different
  beams that fit.

                          Wind  Turn
  Model      Boom   Wgt   Load  Rad   Price
  C4S       12 33 5.9 19.4 759
  C4SXL 23 48 8.0 21.8 1079
  C4XL 35 65 8.2 23.8? 1,249

  You can check them out at:  http://force12inc.com/<http://force12inc.com/>

  I have no first-hand experience with these, but am sure others on the list

  Good luck,
