    If there is, I haven't seen it. That's not to say there isn't one - I 
just haven't seen it.

a 40M stack.  The crane had no clearance above the top of the second piece, 
so the connection had to be just below the top,  and because it was not 
vertical, the climbers had a very hard time getting the bolts in at the 
joint. It would be worth trying to find a way.

    QSL - that screwing around is what I'm trying to avoid. 

    So my question really is can I pick up 100' of 45G from the top without 
bending anything?

Cheers & tnx to everyone for their comments,
