Wilson Flex Antenna
- Extremely flexible design is a great option for off-road antennas that often take a thrashing
There are a lot of things in life that aren’t flexible - when your taxes are due, your wife’s Christmas list - but the Wilson Flex will go whichever way the wind takes it. If you love to off-road or drive through thick brush but hate the beating your antenna takes, the Wilson Flex is the ideal choice for any low-hanging obstacles that may get in your way. This antenna is built to flex up to 180 degrees without snapping or breaking. Features an integrated tunable tip that makes it easy to set your SWR. The Wilson Flex is only available in a 4' length. If you are looking for a flexible antenna that is shorter, consider the 2' or 3' Fiberglass Flex Antenna.
|Model / SKU:||Wilson FLEX 4'|
|Recommended for:||Drivers who frequently encounter low-hanging branches or other obstacles that could hit the antenna. Although the Flex can take the thrashing, its flexible build does reduce its transmit performance. If you're more keen on getting maximum transmit range, we recommend using a traditional fiberglass antenna, such as the Firestik FS or Wilson Silver Load, with a spring instead.|
|Notable Features:||180-Degree Flexibility, Tunable Tip|
|All CB studs and mounts that use the industry-standard 3/8" x 24 thread.|
|Range(s) are provided for comparison purposes only and are subject to numerous installation and environmental variables. For more detailed information, please see our reference article on CB Radio Range.|

The Wilson Flex is extremely similar to the FGT series, with the added benefit of antenna flexibility. It's designed specifically for the CB user needing an antenna that can handle rigorous vibrations from a truck, rugged use and extreme changes in weather, and still perform well. The Wilson Flex has an exclusive impedance-matching transformer to give good SWR without sacrificing power gain. The Flex series includes a tunable tip, making antenna tuning as simple as twisting a knob. Wilson uses 22-gauge silver-plated wire to reduce resistive losses and increase performance. And if the Flex doesn't outperform your current similar antenna, Wilson will refund your money! (Please see manufacturer's website for full details.)

Great unit for the FJ Cruiser, SWR was spot on out of the box as well.
This is my second Flex. I used to use a Firestick but kept breaking them. The Flex also has less noise then the Firestick. I'm really happy with it.
Holds up great going in/out of garage.
Read mixed reviews before purchasing but figured I'd give it a try due to its flexibility on an off road vehicle. Could not get an SWR reading below 3, no matter what I tried. Changed mounts and cable. Finally went to local store bought a shorter antenna which worked perfect tuning at 1.2. Don't waste your money. Get anything else.
Installed on the rear of a Jeep after breaking my firestick pulling into the garage. Was able to tune the SWR to about 1.8-2 across all channels. Then I went and did a stupid thing and tried to recreate the 180 degree bend I saw in the video. It broke in the center, and I've since ordered a firestick again with a spring mount this time.
