As an outside observer on this one:

There haven't been any attacks on SteppIR antennas; there have been
dissenting opinions that SteppIRs are perfect and attempts to convince
the dissenters that their objections to an antenna with moving parts
are unfounded.

I'm looking forward to the day when I can get a 3el or 4el SteppIR
beam but I'm a DXer who really likes the WARC bands and would love the
clean simple installation the SteppIR will allow for a 20m and up

I think if I were a contester and wanted to do 20m, 15m, and 10m
really, really well with 99.9% reliability on any given weekend, I
would be less attracted by the SteppIR and would be looking seriously
at alternatives when I can put up a tower.

The original poster asked for opinions on which antenna is better so
there's going to be a discussion, apparently heated, on whether or not
the C31XR or the SteppIR is better.
