I've used the Tail Twisters over the years with good luck with the exception 
my current set up which is way too large for the T2X.  It's only a TH-5 at 
100 feet, but at 115 feet is a 7L 6-meter beam on a 28'10" boom and a 14 
foot cross boom at 130 feet with a pair of 12L 2-meter beams and a pair of 
11 L 440s. OTOH an HDR 300 couldn't handle it either<:-)) Both lived very 
short lives.

I would think a T2X would hold up well as long as both the weight and wind 
load are within its specs.
