through the Z bracing.  Also, it seems that if that  long mast sleeve isn't
perfectly aligned, you're guaranteed to have a mast  that is out of alignment
and cause serious problems for your rotator.   Finally, once installed, your
antenna and particularly any truss system  above it are going to be out of
reach, since there's no way to stand on a  45AG2.  

All excellent points. I might also point out that  the taper tops are not as 
strong as a flat plate top. I've seen 2 broken  pointy tops - one was 25G and 
the other was 45G. There is just some smallish  welded metal holding them 
    And I saw a pointy top downtube that was welded  out of plumb. Yes, a 
semi-fatal problem that wasn't caught on the ground.
