Reading the mail, it seems many of the popular towers in the States use
tubular legs. We tend to use different brands up in Canada, and it seems
to me construction is more commonly using open L shaped legs, (my tower
is a 20" face Leblanc and Royale) which avoids a number of problems I've
seen documented on the reflector recently. In addition, it's not as easy
to see defects or deterioration inside a tubular leg. I'm just wondering
why manufacturers still use tubing. Is it stronger? ...cheaper? 
...easier to fabricate?
