Interesting thought about the Teflon.
And fastening is indeed important. Ideally you want some kind of
strain relief so the wire does not flex from a hard point. How you do
that, I'm not sure other than making the holes through the spreaders
with a gentle curve as opposed to a sharp edge.
I had a four element quad up for six years and it was a fantastic
performer, but when the wires started breaking I took it down and put
up a triband yagi with a single feedline and no moving parts. It does
not play as well but it's good enough and I sleep better.
The Alpha 89 helps too. :-)
