Based on my expected usage, and budget I have narrowed down my winch choice between the superwinch tiger shark 9.5 and the engo e9000s. After side by sidling the specs the engo is 30# lighter and a little faster and has the synthetic line. The reviews of engo go to basically a love it or hate it relationship with most finding it a quality piece for the price. I have not been able to find a lot of info on the tiger shark but I owned a SW previously and it served me well. The SW has a internal drum brake so I would not be able to up grade to syn line, but never had a problem with steel cable either. Brand recognition is currently the big thing, just don't know if I can trust engo. Please provide any info that might be revel ant to my decision. Thanks.
