I'm looking to purchase a 40-10m. Yagi this summer.  It will be mounted on a 120' Self-Supporting Pi-Rod Tower in Wisconsin.  I'd prefer the antenna to cover the WARC bands but it's not imperative as I'm a contester first and a DX'er second.  Gain and reliability are my two greatest needs.
Note: I currently have a 3-element SteppIR at 50' so I do have WARC band capability for 17 & 12m.  I'd love for my Yagi at 120' to cover 30m. but it's not a requirement.  
A couple of questions:
1) If you were purchasing a 40-10m. Yagi this summer please advise which one you'd purchase and why?
2) The antenna is probably going to have a windload between 15-20 sq. ft.  Please advise which rotor you'd purchase for it?
Thanks & 73,
Dick- K9OM
