    I'm sorry you were mislead. I have found that few dealers actually know 
much about their tower products, let alone actually install one. 

    While "flimsy" isn't an engineering term, the towers are completely 
capable of supporting whatever the size and design windspeed ratings are. And 
per typical tower design criteria, there is a 50% engineering overhead 

    I don't have any reservations about the Trylon capabilities as long as 
the LXC Prime Directive ("DO what the manufacturer says") is observed.
