Seems the HDPE makes the structure of the tower unnecessarily thick where space savings is critical. Certainly I can see the benefits of a flexible mount as he demonstrates, but why not a flexible mount with a more traditional aluminum tower? Seems as though the consensus is that the weight is similar, so why bother with the extra thickness of a full plastic structure? A flexible mount with some damping built in to minimize vibration should be sufficient.
