Question: Which backstay radar mount system?

Hi all. I have a buddy who has purchased a Furuno 2k radar system for his Southern Cross 31 and he will mount it on his backstay. The backstay is a single stay which is split about 8 ft. over the deck and run to the stern corners to allow for tiller clearance.
He is trying to decide which backstay "gimbal" mount system to use. We can download all the tech info on the various models from the net so what is asked for here is any owner experiences with specific models/brands, good and bad...and any installation advice that would be applicable to his backstay setup from those with similar issues.
I've never done one of these so help us out here! Thanks.
