NOOO! Looks like the clamp-brace arm IS going to be the new standard. :-(

These look to be where new circuit risers and switches will be going in - see www.ipernity.com/doc/ndlinegeek/37544092

I would hate to see these on the 34.5kv system, but after taking a look on where things are heading it wouldn't surprise me if some did show up on the 34.5 grid.
Xcel cannot switch to this design!

I know. So far I've only seen them on the 13.8kV system.

Same here, except I haven't seen it on 13.8 yet, just 34.5.

Well it happened anyway, just saw a brand new 34.5 circuit going up here, every single pole has these arms. Not a SINGLE wood arm or brace on it.

Gag-inducing to say the least! :(
