How are the Rohn 25 sections defective?  If you knew they
were defective BEFORE installation, why did you proceed?

If your guyed 190 ft tower looks like a snake, I would suspect
the GUYS.  Did your installer use a plumb bob to align the
tower?  I use two short plumb bobs at 90 degrees to each
other to sight the tower.  Others use a long plumb bob 
suspended inside the tower.  Improper alignment of the
guys will make ANY guyed tower look like a snake,
even if the individual sections are PERFECT.

To me, the quality of your INSTALLER is more suspect.
