  1. Outlaw tower material type 
    I would like to build my own Outlaw style tower. The material appears to be 3/16" aluminum. What I cannot tell is the grade of the material? Is it 5052 AL (soft and excellent for bending) or is it 6061 (aircraft grade, stiffer and will sometimes crack when bending.)
    Will the 5052 provide adequate feel or be too floppy?

    I think your right 6000 series doesn't bend well. And 5000 series has to be designed properly so it won't bend. Looks like your in Calgary there is a guy making towers in medicine hat I can pass along his info.
