You question is much more complex than it would appear because of the
five ham bands covered by a log periodic antenna. There's no simple
answer, and an EZNEC model would provide the most accurate understanding
of the tradeoffs.
The simple answer for a 5 band antenna is to use Phillystran or fiberglas for
at least the top 40 feet of each guy. Otherwise, use on
insulator every 8 feet or so for the top 40 feet of each guy.
