Topband: Inverted L Question

By all means make the vertical portion as tall as possible, even if the horizontal part slopes downward a bit. My 90 footer is really an "inverted J" over a hickory tree with the horizontal part sloping downward at about 20-30 degrees angle.... it plays fine with 100 watts.... Better than my short beverages can hear

My question is:  I can get the vertical portion up about 80-100 feet with the remainder horizontal.  The issue is the horizontal part will have to slope if I put the vertical that high.  Is this ok, or should I put it vertically high enough to make the horizontal portion level.
