My tower uses 3/16" guy cable.  A few days ago I walked around and inspected 
the tower, and notice that one of the guy insulators is cracked.  Don't know 
if it was lightning or if someone took a potshot at it, but it needs to be 

I have the spare insulator, and the old one is installed using Guy Grips, 
also known as pre-forms.  Has anyone had any experience re-using them?  I am 
wondering if I should order a new set (not expensive just for only one 
insulator), or if I re-used the old ones would they hold ok?
