It looks just like the standard Element antenna (except for the Honda part being made of rubber).

Nobody likes a big ugly rubber antenna. Agency Power has released their brand new shorty antenna available for your tuner car. These CNC machined 6061 aluminum antennas fit in the place of your stock unit.
Big? Ugly? The Agency Power unit looks amazingly like the "big ugly rubber antenna" on the Element.

I'll pass.

I replaced mine 2x's

demansia

I have used Stubby antenna's and will tell you Radio reception will suffer in congested areas. I have an HD tuner on my radio and if I pass under a freeway...:mad:

They do look very nice but if you are an Am Listener you are going to be very dissapointed.:confused:

But you will look cool.
:lol:

If you really want to go small, take a look at antennas from Black Forest Industries. http://store.blackforestindustries.com/bfistromoans.html

I have their smallest one (1.5") installed on my E. Look at post #62 of the following thread to see what it looks like. It is the smaller antenna in the pictures.

The larger antenna you see in the pictures is a 2.5" from Enigma. http://www.mazda3forums.com/enigma/index.html

I honestly cannot tell you how the reception is with these antennas. My radio's antenna is not connected right now. I stopped listening to FM/AM at about the same time I installed that antenna. I only listen to my iPod now that is interfaced to my stereo with the iSimple iPod interface. The antenna is just for looks.

Short Stubby does not play well with AM

Hi,

I have a simillar product installed on my e and frankly I wish I had kept the stock. I have since lost the stock so my options are limited. I will say that I have seen some of these replacement that actually have a base loaded whip in the inside (simple explanation is a long antenae coiled to fit in a smaller spot) and those have performed quite well. The antena that you specify (along with the one that I have on my E now) seem to be cosmetic "hunk of metal" antenas that don't offer much by way of performance but just look nice. If you can find one with a base loaded whip concealed inside, then it should work quite well.

Pumi:cool:

Update: I looked at the previous post recommended antenas and noticed that I currently have the BFI #6 installed on my E....
