This is a no compromise solution. A robust 1:1 Choke Balun for use with a Doublet or G5RV where ladder-line meets coax - Perhaps just after your ATU. You could also position it at the base of a resonant vertical - to act as a choke/isolator. We don't cut corners: This balun is wound using RG142 coax and the ferrite core is an FT240-31 offering resistive performance between 3.5MHz and 30MHz so a perfect solution for your all-band HF aerial - and it's rated for over 400 watts continuous.
B-STOCK : The terminals are slightly closer together than normal, and one is slightly lower (see image 4) - this does not affect the product's performance, just falls short of our usual high-standard of workmanship - so is being offered at a discount. This is the 8-turn model.

Baluns - What/Why?
It's good practice to put a Bal(anced)Un(balanced) where coax meets aerial or balanced-feeder. A Balun will help prevent "common-mode current" on the outer of the coaxial braid - This is vital to ensure that RF does not flow down the coax, turn it into part of the antenna system and give you "RF in the Shack". Using a 1:1 Current Balun at the junction of balanced-feeder+coax is preferable, in most cases, to a 4:1 Balun - and certainly better than the internal 4:1 (voltage) balun found in many tuners!
