    The term 1/4" Phillystran is meaningless.  Philllystran model number 
describes the ultimate breaking strength which does  correspond to EHS wire 
or actual physical size. 
HPTG2100 has 2100 pounds of UBS
HPTG4000 has 4000 pounds of UBS which is what 3/16" EHS is
HPTG6000 has 6000 pounds of UBS which is what 1/4" EHS is 
    For your 25G installation, Rohn specs call for  3/16" EHS so the HPTG4000 
is what you need. 
    BTW HPTG stands for High Performance Tower Guy.
