Reversing winches: Easing sheets at the touch of a button.

Reversing winches:  Easing sheets at the touch of a button.

Selden, Lewmar and Harken which is the best?  Check out the videos below.

I like the Selden design as the winch incorporates reversing with no apparent compromise and no reliance on electrical motors.

Lewmar looks pretty good if you want to go down the road of a heavy dependence on electricity.

Harken incorporates the maximum amount of features, but the requirement to flip the red switch on the base of the winch seems cumbersome.
