Field day worthy but not much beyond that.  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
If one is pressed to "get higher" then this mast will meet minimal requirements. This product is more fitted for wind socks and not much else. Once you, "Place a mark 1 foot from the end of each tube except the largest one" and do the math you won't end up with 33 feet.
Also, the top section is too flimsy and arcs under minimal weight - in my case a 20 meter dipole - even with guying at 2 levels.
It has withstood this past winter's winds here in Pennsylvania and it is relatively inexpensive and it will provide you with additional antenna height but that's about it.
Yes, it gave me additional dipole height; but can I honestly recommend it? Nope.
