I am waiting until the summer, when I will have the money to replace almost if not everything. Cable, dish, receiver, the lot.

I will probably go for a 1.25 Gibertini. I don't want to risk attracting the attention of my local council by going bigger.
It will be looking above a single storey flat roof. It will be on a 3 inch diameter steel pole standing in concrete and bolted to the side of the building. That should make it very stable. It's going to cost a fortune, but it will be worth it. A new 4k receiver also.

I might use the Triax at ground level in a different part of the garden to get some of the sats beyond 37.5w as there is a massive chimney blocking the view beyond 37.5w.

if it gets caught in a gale the dish will rip the arm of your dark motor and go flying down the street

It won't have the dark motor attached. It will be almost if not completely a complete new system.

If I were you I would go for Channel Master 1.2m. Why? Just because it would be: firstly- cheaper, and secondly - better. Cheaper, I men even used CM1.2m will perform as new one. Better means CM1.2m has more or less same size as Gibertini 125. And, BTW, Bigertini 125 is no 1.25m (working area) antenna! Moreover, after 10 years CM1.2m will work same but Gibi will be already garbaged as t[it will be rusted and warped. Anyway, whatever you chose is fine.

I will take a look at the Channel Master 1.2.

I was always under the impression that after a fibo, the Gibertini was second best.

IMHO, Fibo 1.2 is not the best, as it's main mirror is made of aluminum and after years of usage can change (and usually does) it's shape. So, I would say that Channel Master 1.2m equipped with SUB-reflector, or even without it, is the best possible option. Especially if you can get used CM1.2m on second hand market for something like 50 EUR or even less.
To make sure you are confident what I am speaking about, and maybe know the issue, I will post picture of my present setup

Very nice. I assume your local council are not interested in people who have lots of dishes.

I do not care and, probably, they do not care as well. TBH, I did not ask Council for permission. Perhaps, we do not have permissive rules yet.
I personally see nothing wrong if people have more then one dish installed, especially if you live in the country side.

I live in a small seaside town and I think it might be noticed if I a set-up like you and the council would complain.

I will end up having 2 dishes sometime this summer. I feel I can get away with that. I also have a small sky dish which I use for Freesat. If I lived in the country, I would have many dishes too and probably a wife complaining.

That is very impressive i really mean that aswell
its a lot of cables however @ RimaNTSS
but i really like it a lot especially that biggest Channel Master Prime Focus dish you have what size is it please ?
and it looks like a big C Band Feedhorn LNB on it if i'm not mistaken ?
And i fully get what you say about living in the country side its very true and for me there just is not any council around even to ask for any permission and im sure if there was they could really care less if i had 60 dishes or Six [ i have Six BTW. ] ,lol's

But looking at those dishes i agree with everthing you said because my Channel master 1.2 dish still looks exactly same as it did when i installed it 10 years ago

it preforms fantastic really it does best offset dish ive ever had infact .

if i ever win the lotto that biggest Channel master dish you have i will be getting the exact same type dish and the very first thing i'll be buying for myself that is for definite

i am very impressed thank you for sharing that picture with us @ RimaNTSS m8 : )
cheers !
