There are pros and cons to each one..

Fiberglass antennas (like a FireStik) are usually tuneable but they can break or crack from one good smack on something. You also need a spring for these.

Whip doesnt require a spring, they are pretty hard to break but are not tuneable. Some parks also dont allow them and they can be hazardous to drive on the street in certain situations because of the whip action
