    I'm trying to figure out whats better for several brass impacts that are about 2.5 feet above ground.

    PVC riser (most amount of swinging)
    PVC riser with L channel aluminum + cable ties to secure
    PVC riser with rebar? + cable ties to secure?
    Galvanized riser that starts about a foot into the ground

    Some tweaker is just going to steal that brass impact head anyway.

    Don't forget the tire.

    I'd use a metal riser or at least a schedule 80 nipple there, or better yet install a 12" rotor set to grade.
