I have a similar setup, although it's on a TX-455 tower. When I bought the inverted vee arm, it showed up as you describe, rather than the old "clamp on" style that I ordered through the catalog. I had the same concern about the drag issue, and putting stress on the antenna. I gave the new arm away. I'm using a metal pipe that is clamped to the very top of the tower, with two pulleys attached to allow me to use inverted vees, inverted L's, a linear loaded antenna for 160, and an assortment of other low band antennas. They all work well. I also have the 4 element SteppIR atop the tower and am very happy with it.
That said, the US Towers inverted vee arm that rides on the mast may work OK - I just didn't want to risk it.
Cheers and 73, Joe WDØM
