Here we go again...making assumptions. When you are using an undersized thrust bearing I can see your point Kelly. Not everyone is using a CDE (MFJ) Ham or Tailtwister rotor. Have you ever seen the bearing inside a HDR-300 rotor? It is dinky and I feel not designed to take a lot of weight...so the thrust bearing takes most if not all the weight. Different rotor/mast/antenna combinations require different designs. BTW I place a saddle clamp on top of the thrust bearing for safety purposes just in case I have a senior's moment.
As much as it pains me to see this thread revived so quickly after it died out the last time (this is well covered in the archives)...
