H to H is fine, if the dish is not too large, because all the power of wight 
and wind is concentrated on one point. Therte is large H to H mount from 
Jager. A friend is using this mount for a year or so on a 180cm dish without 
any problems.

Magnetic polarusers could live a little bit longer because no mechanical 
parts are involved. A servo is better in attent. of the opposite 
polarisation. If you will use c- and kuband, you should use the 
servo-version. Beware of no name products or cheap copies
