Hi

Is this a good quality dish?

:confused

Or is a Triax TD60 a better option?

The Triax is much better built, they are pretty flimsy.

No, it is fixed with a retaining clip, I use loads of them and they are pretty good for that grade of dish and way more substantial in build and performance than the Fortecstar dishes. At the end of the day though, if it receives what you want to receive, then fine. :)
