Is there a correct pull ?
Easy answer to your question.
Go by whatever Rohn recommends for the guy wire.  If you use 3/16  inch EHS, 
you should have approximately 390 lbs of force on it.  If you use  1/4 inch 
EHS, use approximately 670 lbs.  If you use 5/16 use around 1100  lbs.  Just 
whatever the book recommends for guy wire and you should be  fine.
It is possible to use too heavy a guy wire and the 10% figure would  actually 
be trying to pull the tower apart.  An extreme example would be  using 5/16 
on Rohn 25 and using 1100 pounds of pull on it...not too smart!
