[TowerTalk] Used Phillystran Testing

Phillistran gets  its' strength from the fibers inside while the black 
plastic sheath only protects those fibers.  If the sheath is not 
compromised, the inside should be O.K. I would pay particular attention to 
the ends where the grips are located and the ends where there should be a 
cap glued on.  The cap was to prevent water wicking up into the fiber and 
then freezing, spitting the sheath and exposing the fibers.

I am in the planning stages for a new tower and intend to use Phillistran 
and have noticed that NOBODY sells used Phillistran on the swap boards.
