I use guy grips with back-to-back thimbles inside the loops.

There is nothing wrong with using the insulators however I am not sure what good they do since Phillystran is not conductive. I have been using back to back thimbles on 6700# and 11200# guys for decades without issue.

this 155ft tower will be Phillystran with a short EHS chunk, about 10-20 feet long, near the ground where it attaches to the guy anchor plate.
My query is what would be the prudent and safest/strongest method to join that EHS guy cable to that Philly cable? I have a box full of Rohn 502 insulators and I was thinking of using those. Any better alternatives?

Thanks!  73   Al   N9ISN
