    The only thing on their site that’s $495 is the buddipole. This the BuddiStick. The most recent pricing is $199 for the whip, coil, 2 11in elements and the versahub. The tripod legs are $51 and the coax is $26. These prices may change before it’s official launch. If you would like to buy one shoot them an email at info@buddipole.com

    I base it on my setup is 80-6m and what's required to carry everything. The video shows the carry bag also. Link here. https://www.buddipole.com/dbplong.html $495.00

    See the price? Now you parting it out. You youtubers should at least be honest as your parting it out yourself. Video makes no mention of buying separate components.

    If you would like to encourage us buying one disclose your interest. Very tired of youtubers getting gear for free or at a deep discount then telling us to buy it.

    I dont get anything from them for free. I purchase everything I use. I have been using Buddipole products since 2012. As far as disclosing interest, I dont work for Buddipole. I talk about their products because I like them. That is why I normally refer someone to Buddipole for pricing. This video and thread is about The Buddistick Pro, Not their buddipole dipole lineup as you quoted and referenced. They also offer a Buddistick product which you did not reference and its there on the website and is much lower than the price you quoted. The Product in the video is a new release / revision of the buddistick on their website. My video is not "sponsored" by Buddipole either, this was just my video showing the components in the kit, how its put together and how I use it myself.

    Very tired of youtubers wasting my time for nothing. With no real reviews, no real measurements, and nothing really useful I have to watch at shaking pictures and listen to talking head who say 'this product is awesome' with no any hard proof. Even if particular product is really awesome.

    You are looking at the wrong antenna. This is the BuddiSTICK Pro, which is not released to the public yet. I paid $275 for my BuddiSTICK Pro package which I will have a video on later.

    I have my unboxing coming out Thursday that goes over the parts. I am working on part two where I set each component up and show you how to tune it then get on the air. I will be putting it on a Stick230 bluetoothed to my ipad so I can show the full chart.

    Not necessarily you in person but let's be honest: many people want to proof their rightness towards the things they've bought. One says to everyone that some product is good just to proof to oneself one wasn't wrong buying it. The worse particular product is the more aggressive 'defense' of the product is. This is a kind of self-deception but human psychic works such way. So we've got plenty of videos where talking heads really bought smth by own money and now want us to support their belief in the product goodness. Look at Apple fanatics: they would literally kill anyone who denies divine essence of Apple products.

    Really good videos there are. But they drown in garbage.

    I appreciate your comment on things you want to see. I am still new at the youtube stuff, so I like the good and bad comments. It helps tweak content to what the viewer wants to see. 73!
