Folded J-Pole for repeater?



Folded J-pole - It's an end fed half wave, wide band antenna...

For me - easier than making a matching stub for a folded dipole. The only reason the folded dipole has a wide band width, is because of the thicker material used ( 1/2 inch aluminum or copper tubing) Which is the same for folded j-pole.

I also would think,  more loss in using a matching stub, on a folded dipole.  And using  braided coax to make a stub (which always winds up making noise, because I live in a damp environment , by the ocean) 

I plan on using superflex 

So superflex plus folded j-pole for repeater???

Please and thank you for any advice.
