I use center fed, half wave slopers which don't depend on the tower 
except for support.  They work very well at a 60 degree angle. 
Unfortunately that means a pretty tall support for 75/80 meters to get 
60 degrees. That's about 143' tower for just running the antenna from 
the ground to the top of the tower.  Add about another 10' for clearance 
on each end and that's a lot of tower.
