In fact, I have tried many self made cloverleafs following IBCrazy's design, this one which I bought from HK, gives the best result. It is available as a set, a CL and a SP. Looks like they did a very good job in designing and tuning.

I know this because I was RF engineer before I retired a few years ago and know a few things about antenna design.
Good to hear.
I'm sold!
