Seems to me 
for that money they could include an  aluminum plate with four holes and a 
couple of turnbuckles.
    Well, then your $2300 antenna will cost $2400,  $2500 or at some 
increased cost due to the increased parts and labor.  

Like everything else, this method - and all the  others - has its pluses 
and minuses. This method is certainly easier  with smaller antennas than 
bigger ones plus it makes it more difficult to  balance the boom. Is that a big 
deal? You decide.
