Makes no difference in the long run 

Antron A99, Imax 2000, J-Pole, Gainmaster, Predator 10K, Vector 4000, couple of Stardusters all modelled at 36ft and not even 3dB or one S point between best and worst. Even if you threw in a simple 1/4 wave ground plane into that mix there'd be barely 1 S point. Buy whichever random internet stranger's claim of what defies physics and magically outperforms all others by miles or which company's marketbollox you believe the best. If you want a better antenna for DXing you need to get away from vertical monopole antennas and get yourself a beam at which point there are actual worthwhile differences between various options and not just in forward gain.
