Re: PSA - Hook vs. Bolt Attachment

Potentially less stable, harder to get accurate, you will have to be very precise to do this. I wouldn't recommend it because the amount of time/effort/skill it takes to get it perfect won't pay off IMO to get the extra 1cm of vertical distance.

I think, to a point, you need to be ultra precise on how even your column pieces are as well as your tension pieces. It will be very similar to towers, where if your tower wasn't perfectly level, there will be an imbalance which may cause the death of your boom.
