XTREME MJ survives Hurricane Irma! Read one customer's experience (September 2017):
"We've owned a Bad Boy (Xtreme) MJ for about 3 years now, and it has been a highly valuable device on board. We've got it installed at the top of the mast, riveted in on the provided L bracket. We are located in St Maarten where we recently took a huge Category 5 direct hit with over 200MPH/360KPH winds. I'm happy to report the Bad Boy, with antenna, is still mounted at the top of the mast. Suffice to say, your product is pretty robust. Thanks again!" - Derek, s/y ARAVILLA

If you can find a better price for a complete system similar to Xtreme, we will better it by 10%!

  1. Would not be without it

    Posted by Rick Kennard on 24th Aug 2016

    WiFi booster works great. I had to order a replacement antenna for my boat after hitting a tree while trailering. Removed the broken one and replaced with the new one. Instantly worked. 3 minute job.

  2. Still the best!

    Have had a Badboy and Unleashed on the boat for 5 years and decided to upgrade to the metal-body Extreme and new antenna. As usual, everything works perfectly and the customer service of BitStorm is second to none. Thanks!

  3. reception is 5 stars +

    We put the antenna at 45 feet hieght on the back stay and could connect with a xfinity network 15 mls away!
    Maybe you are used to this kind of performance , but to me it was unbelievable. I substracted one point because the antenna I replaced broke

  4. Not to be missed!

    This product enabled my son and his wife to connect with home during their Adventure on Tap from the easternmost province in Canada (Newfoundland) to the southernmost city in the world - Ushuaia, Argentina! It worked perfectly and he recommended it to a lot of fellow travellers.

  5. The best attenae going.

    This is our second bitstorm installation. One for the boat and one on the RV. After trying multiple solutions over the years Bitstorm, without a doubt, has been the best.
