Suggestions on a shorter antenna?

I've searched the forums a bit but I wasnt able to come up with anything other than one option... I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction for a black antenna that will be shorter than the stock one on my 08 WK..
I'm not looking for a stubby one.. more so like half the length of the stock one..(if its a little shorter than that, its cool.. I just dont want anything under 10 or 8") that I will still get good reception with.. The only thing I've come across so far was one by AntennaX... here's the link http://www.antennax.com/p-2667-black...9-2010-wk.aspx

not sure if anyone has dealt with these before.. I hear some good and I also hear some pretty bad comments about them... If someone could give me some suggestions of any site to grab a good shorter antenna from or a vendor on the forum would could help me out, I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

Thanks. I checked a few out on Ebay.. i found an 8" and then that 14" by antennaX.. i'm gonna keep looking for something else..but the 14" may be the one.. i think thats a good 14" off the stock one!... plus I dont want it to be too short. I don't like that look. Maybe I'll even swing by a Auto store in Scranton and see what I can find. I hear Pep Boys may carry some.. How's the reception with the one you have?

i only lost about a 1-5 miles of reception from when i used to lose stations on on I-380 to where i lose them now. not bad at all, i was glad to get rid of the fishing pole antenna.

Re: Suggestions on a shorter antenna?

My suggestion is to cut down your stock antenna. Remove the ball from the end, cut off as much as you'd like, super glue the ball back on. That's what I did and it still works fine and doesn't look like a fishing pole anymore.

Those antennas are four times the price, look silly and kill your reception. I suggest cutting and painting your surrent antenna or buying one similar online. Not the wierd looking style antenna lol
