Our version of Manuel Schütz's Palm is an excellent MTA choice in high winds because it sets up very far in front. However, it is also a very effective MTA in medium and lighter winds because it is thinner and lighter than the original. We use 1.6mm American phenolic which is very tunable but less brittle than European 1.5mm and lighter than 2.0mm. We think it's the perfect blend. Tuning instructions included.
