[TowerTalk] One thrust bearing vs. two

I use two because I have a 20 foot mast over the tower with 3 antennas and 
it gives me
a better feeling that the mast won't twist out of vertical  when I pull the 
rotator to lower the mast
to get to the upper antennas (80M rotatable dipole and 2 el 40M yagi). 
Operationally with
the rotator in place it really doesn't matter that I can see.
