    Forgot to add my perspective on the topic. While the Loos gauge does give a somewhat meaningful but not entirely accurate measurement of guy wire tension, to me the important thing is that using the Loos does allow you to tension the guys to a meaningful tension. The most important thing is that the guys have similar tensions; that is, each guy at each level have the same measurement. Whether the tension is somewhat plus or minus the desired tension is not a fatal problem. The fact that they're all the same is the main thing you're trying to achieve.
