Not neccessarily.

The big 1000'+ broadcast towers are installed using 50' or
60' gin poles made out of tower (appropiately sized of course).
They do not slide in a bracket, but simply get lashed up at
the top of each succeeding section. They DO have a nice swivel
pulley head at the top, but otherwise are nothing fancy. Still,
I would call them "real" gin poles :-)
