Default Looking for a low profile cb antenna

I just purchased a cobra wx st II in-dash cb radio, and i'm now in need of an antenna. I wanted to get a larsen nmo but the smallest i can find is 47" and i'd really prefer something shorter (around 30" or less).

I would prefer roof mounted or trunk lip mounted, non magnetic (but possibly, idk)

I was looking at this one form radio shack
http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...howFullReviews

reviews were good but i'm still not sure, i've heard mixed reviews about glass mount antennas.

What are the rest of you guys using?

Glass mount are okay but you don't get that much of a range. I have been running the "Little Wil" Wilson CB Magnet Mount Antenna for many years on my cars. I did have a glass mount on one of my cars but that didn't last long when I want to get hear further down the road. Now you can get a small fiberglass antenna at about 18" or I have a 12" but they too just don't get much range.

Hope this helps
