Advice please, My T& K brackets are mounted on a brick wall and are solid   (for now)  Just wondering if there is a preference on Bolts ? 

Winter winds are coming and I am at 140 feet above sea level nothing higher around me.

Half decent anchor bolts should suffice

Sleeve or through bolts, as I am thinking Sleeve anchor bolts may not hold over time.

A couple of builder mates swear by these.
Atlas or thunderbolts

Rather than trusting a video sponsored by the company product in the video id do seperate reserch atlas bolts are ok for close edge or fragile material but not my cup of tea for something substantial like a mast system

Atlas is one of several manufacturers of thread bolts. 
I didn't post on the trust of the video, I was recommended that type of bolt by two builders 👍🏼
The video was merely to show them.

https://listerstimber.co.uk/thunder-bolt-atlas-8-x-150/

The advantage of them is they can also be used for close edge since they don't expand.
Anchors have a tendency to crack bricks if close to edges, over tightened or after time getting pulled about through stress.

I'm a bit apprehensive myself of using them but apparently they are good. 

I've yet to put up a t and k bracket for a gainmaster. I've exhausted myself looking at options lol.
Then I realised i put a bracket into one brick for a washing line about 20 years ago or more using just 4 screws and rawl plugs and it's still solid as a rock .
And the weight my mrs puts on that line with wet rugs etc is astronomical 🤣
So I'll probably try atlas etc. 

There are still some expanding bolts in the wall from a long gone satellite dish. The bricks have cracked over time. I could of removed them if they were threaded.
