Default Low drag antennae

I was wondering what are the best quality low drag antennaes would be best to buy? I plan on using using either the Advanced or Dynon avionics with their autopilot servos. I'll most likely us a Avidyne GPS.

Thanks!

I usually use the bent whip com antennas made by RAMI and either the rod and ball or shark fin antenna for transponder and ADS-B. For Nav I like the wingtip Bob Archer.
