I've got one of those bearings at the top of my tower.  I'm not sure about 
longevity, though.  I've only had it up there since last fall, when the mast 
went in and the antenna finally went up.  It did weather our rather harsh ice 
storm well, and everything is really smooth.  I've had absolutely no problems 
with this bearing in the short time I've had it up there.  You'll have to drill 
your own holes in your mounting plate, though.

Before I purchased it, I called Gaylen and spoke to him about how it was 
constructed.  I can't remember what he told me, though, so you might want to do 
the same.  It did sound like it was constructed considerably better than it's 
counterpart Rohn unit.  It is machined aluminum, I know that much, and I think 
it's got hardened steel bearings inside, but I don't know for sure.  Certainly 
worth the look-see.
