Mohu Leaf Glide 65-Mile Antenna Review – (One of The Best Indoor Antennas We Ever Tested)


After testing out the new Mohu antenna we can say that the Mohu Leaf Glide takes everything you love about the Mohu Leaf and makes it even better. So let’s take a look at what is new, and why you may want to upgrade to the new Mohu Leaf Glide.

Whats New

There are a few major improvements. The range is increased to 65 miles. While the range is something to always take with a grain of salt, the new Glide antenna is a huge step up in range.

The new Mohu Glide Antenna now works great with both VHF and UHF stations—something the old Mohu Leaf struggled with.

You will also find that the new antenna is a lot larger than the old Mohu Leaf. The Mohu Glide Leaf is about twice the size of the old Mohu Leaf. It still hides easily on your wall, so the size is no issue.

How the New Antenna Performs

In our testing, there is a noticeable improvement with the Mohu Glide Leaf over the older Mohu antennas. Not only is it better than any of the older Mohu antennas, it is the best flat antenna we have ever tested. The addition of VHF support helps bring in additional stations the old Mohu Leaf struggled with. The main improvement we saw was weak stations that our older antennas struggled with now came in clear.

Not only does it do better with VHF, the UHF also seems better. The new Mohu Glide Antenna uses SignalLift technology to optimize the signal and help you get a better picture. Again though there needs to be a signal there for the antenna to pick up. We found the Mohu Leaf Glide did best when we tried to pick up stations that the older version saw but struggled to bring in clearly. With the Leaf Glide, we found several stations that had been static filled came in clearly.

Final Thoughts

If you have the old Mohu Leaf Antenna, or any antenna you are unhappy with, it may be time to upgrade. The new Mohu Glide Leaf Antenna is a huge step up and offers a greatly improved antenna.

Now before you buy any antenna make sure you can get locals where you live. Just because you live within the mileage listed does not mean you will pick anything up. Hills and more can block over the air TV signals. We recommend the first thing you do is visit AntennaRecommendations.com and make sure you live an area with over the air TV before you buy an antenna.

    Now if only we knew if this article was bought or not. Banking on the former.

    I want to see real test results on the difference between standard bunny ears and the old Mohu Leafs. Not PR material and your word that its “better.” I can read this from Mohu’s website.

    • From the disclaimer on the site “We do not allow paid posts or paid reviews on this site.”

      • Richard smith

        Do you have any reviews of $20 50 mile range antennas?

        • If you search the site you will find many antennas but I can’t think of any that cost under $20 but really give 50 mile range.

          • Richard smith

            There are plenty of 50 Mile flat ones on Amazon in the $20-$25 range. I would love to see you test one of those.

      • Duder12

        Ok but why does your review suck and sound like it was paid?

    • Gerry Allen

      Your unfounded assertion that Cord Cutter News is a fraudulent site and is for sale to the highest bidder is libelous. Shame on you.

      • Duder12

        They make up stories/rumors… This is even less offensive than that and wouldn’t be surprising.

  • DonMoore

    It’s all about location. With Digital TV, you really can’t tell if a better antenna will capture the signal any better – it is all or nothing. I bought the Mohu Sky 60 earlier and was not impressed with its ability to “bring out” weak signals. I got the same stations with a $10 antenna. Granted, I live in a terrain-blocked location, where some stations are just not possible without some height (roof antenna mast). I only wish these antenna recommendation sites took terrain into their suggestions. If you live in the hills or mountains, good luck with over-the-aiir.

    • Timothy Lenz

      Check tvfool.com. One of the bits of info you add is your antenna height and it does have option for showing terrain blocking.

    • HiroRoshi

      There are TV stations just far enough away from me where it captures on a channel scan but can’t hold signal enough to generate the picture. Upgrading antenna made a difference. But yeah, terrain can be a killer.

      These reviews though could be a little more technical and use a TV or something like HDHomeRun that shows the signal strength difference with different antennas.

  • Richard smith

    What is better reception? Signal cuts out less? Less blocking? Don’t see how an antenna can improve the PQ.

  • JerYnkFan

    I was extremely disappointed with this product. Bought it and even though I have towers with 40-60 miles I didn’t get one single channel. Tried it on two different TVs and all over my apartment and got nothing. Thankfully they have a 30 day money back guarantee. Returned it two days after I got it.

    • Sincere Me

      I, too, was extremely disappointed with this antenna. My high hopes were quickly dashed when I could not pull in stations 40 miles away I could pull in with other antennas. I tried and tried, but sadly this antenna was almost a complete failure for me.

      • Richard smith

        From what I read about antennas, you need the max range to be close to the distance from the towers. So this antenna is good for stations that are 50-65 miles away. 40 miles might be to close.

        • Phuq_Me

          wrong.

    • grinlap

      These antennae are designed to be placed on a wall to camouflage them if used indoors. If you live in a masonry building you will get poor performance unless you can get the antenna outside, on a window or in the attic above the masonry. If there is any substantial masonry or metal like appliances, studs, etc performance will be degraded substantially.

  • Pebo Bryson

    Kind of a vague review in the vein of “its better”. Maybe more detailed information with actual stations tested and a tv fool report with some pictures to verify it was actually used? IDK, just saying.

    • Yeah. What I would suggest doing is using a HDHomerun to check for signal strength on most or all primary channels and compare those numbers for the Mohu Leaf Glide and Mohu Leaf 50/Ultimate.

      • Richard smith

        How important is signal strength. I rarely get above 60, but my Snr and Symbol quality are always maxed out.

  • Jak Ripper

    BULLSHIT…..BULLSHIT….BULLSHIT……oh and did I say BULLSHIT….Most of these Companies making these OUTRAGEOUS CLAIMS are just LIARS…they think just because Stupid people believe Stupid Politicians then they can LIE like a POLITICIAN ….Well It’s BULLSHIT

    • Gerry Allen

      Just like you.

  • Josh

    I would like to say I have this antenna and it works great. I pick up fox and the cw when I struggled getting those stations

  • Phuq_Me

    bull. reception is going to vary by area you can’t say if this antenna is any good or not for the majority. Also it’s $90. I sure as hell can make my own antenna that better for FAR cheaper.

    • Daniel Darnell

      Little tip, Amazon sells it for $90 but Sam’s Club has it for just $50!

      • I don’t think they typically sell for $90 on Amazon. Looks like they are sold out and 3rd party sellers have jacked up the price.

      • Phuq_Me

        tip I can still build a better one for far less than $50.

  • Sean Berends

    I have the Mohu 50 and it does pretty good for me. There are a couple of high VHF stations that can be iffy so I may look at this when the price drops. I’m not paying $90 for it.

  • Richard smith

    You want an antenna that’s max is close to the range of the towers. So this wouldn’t be good for towers that are less than 40 miles away.

  • BrianH1972

    So many haters in here. This forum gives us up to date info even before the companies themselves know what is going on, they have contest giving away free stuff and the info we obtain from here is free. Why the negativity?

    Don’t like the antenna? Don’t buy it.

    • Phuq_Me

      Maybe we don’t want people wasting hard earned money and still not solving a problem??
