For self support lightweight towers, I typically buy the Valmont broadband 
towers.  They are solid rod.  I have bought a heavier duty 80-ft Saber solid 
rod tower that is very sturdy, but their regular product line is tube leg and 
for commercial work I don't like tube legs over 40ft because I can't see if 
there is rust inside (can't get away from Rohn 25's of course).  I have seen 
the Trylon 60ft SS, it was ok, but I have also seen one not installed correctly 
and was straight at the bottom but not plumb at the top - not something I want 
to be responsible for.

I'm curious how the ANW compares to the Valmont Broadband series, anyone know?
