I hesitate to recommend rope in ALL antennas, but to 
see how Hygain does it, check out any of their HF 
monobanders' manuals

As far as I could tell, Hygain's tribanders don't make 
mention of adding rope to the elements with traps on 
them.  TH3, no rope.  TH6, no rope.  TH7 - rope in 
monoband (non-trapped) elements only.
