My 4L SteppIR uses small diameter Phillystran as a bridle for the boom, 
clamped with saddle clamps. I have the antenna on the ground, and was 
going to replace the saddle clamps with stainless steel ones.

When I took off the old clamps, the 'stran is crushed absolutely flat 
where the U-bolt side bore on it. It appears as tho there is nothing in 
the jacket. The jacket isn't broken, only flat.

Is the Philly cut or broken, or is that much crush normal? It doesn't 
seem like a good idea to breach the jacket to have a look-see.
