Thanks, that is nice to know. I've been building a few compression box designs but none have reached 1000 yet. Guess I'll keep building them.
What are compression box designs? Are they like the chimneys from last years towers where it is 4 main sticks and bracings? Also, i think the standard design is the best, but i don’t think the compression part of a boomilever is as important as the distal end, base, and bracings that connect the compression and tension members. I have never had any trouble with the compression members and have been getting over 1500 consistently.
