The closest to that I've seen is a double-ended VHF-High Yagi. It has the driven element in the center and directors on each end, but no reflectors.

I can't find the poster's image right now, but holl_ands did model a similar antenna:





The two directions are combined in the antenna.

This antenna IS bi-directional; it has more gain than a bi-directional dipole, but less gain than the Stellar Labs 30-2475. It still has the potential problem of co-channel interference from the two directions.
