It seems like a lot of people have been happy with Uflex hydraulic steering. Not sure if it is better, but there are a lot of posts about Uflex on THT if you search.

After owning a few Seastar systems I decided to try a Uflex. I'm very happy with it and the customer service was excellent when I lost a part during install. Is it better? Who knows. The steering shaft is stainless which is an improvement over the aluminum that's in the Seastar. Other than that they are very similar.
