sheets, staysail sheets, main sheet and halyards. Opinions?

When I was choosing winches for my boat (several years ago) I was informed by yard, that from options available (Lewmar, Andersen, Harken) the best owners feedback is for Harken
. Yard had not financial interest in misinformation (I was paying for winches straight to supplier and flat rate for installation
to the yard). Gone with the advice and never regret it.
I do not want to say, that Lewmar were any less good at the time - I just followed the yard advice.
