All true, but you did mention a slight loss of signal strength and as for look's? that is an individuals "taste." However with "hi-tech" folks, the practicallity of the "whip" becomes obvious. Most changes are made to get a "differant" look.
An antenna is made for "reception" and if changing one does not improve "reception", why bother?

I, for one, hate terrestrial radio, and the whip antenna base came off the lot with a scratch on it, so the sharkfin antenna is an easy way for me to cover the scratch. I never listed to old-fashioned radio anymore, so I don't care about the reception!
