R-20 has the same Dia. leg material as R-25... it's the Z brace material R -25 5/16" and R-20 1/4" and number of Z's Bays R-25 has 7 where R-20 has 6 bays .
The " American tower I am familiar with had the pinched welded cross bar and was " NOT" galvanized .
Had a higher degree of PUCKER factor even at low heights of 30'
But then again R-25 gets the same flexible pucker @ 100 plus ft.

I've climbed 90 feet of it and it "felt" was about as sturdy as 25G, of
course after climbing 100' 45G a 25G feels like light duty too <:-)
My old ROHN catalog shows 25G with Z braces. I don't remember what the
20 looked like.
