And me - unguyed, anyway.

The heavy duty one certainly is.
I have the 4 section heavy duty one, which I've ended up having at 62 feet
because I can't get the guys far enough out. Loaded with a Hy Gain 205BA and an
interlaced 4 ele for 10/ 4 ele for 15 at 68 feet, that stood up to the 1987 and
1991 hurricanes, where wind speed locally hit 120mph. That's guyed at 3 levels.
I would be very dubious about an antenna the size of a Pro 57 unguyed.
Incidentally, I haven't heard anyhting good about the Pro 57, but that's
probably nopt worth much of an opinion.
