But that's actually a really good point. Lashed poles can be adjusted to work on more uneven terrain than these rigidly hinged ones. But the TD is great for simplicity, portability and ease of setup indoors and on really flat areas.
Al the more reason to have many stands.
I still make my lashed bamboo stand for the back yard every season. It's just cooler.
