Clipper Wind Instrument w/Masthead Transducer

Hello everyone, I'm new here and have a question about wind instruments. I just bought a Catalina 42 and the Autohelm wind sensor is shot. I was thinking of replacing it with a clipper wind instrument which is much cheaper. Does anyone have any experience with this instrument?
Thanks for the advice.

I have one. Works well. Be careful with the data port and power connections as there isn't any polarity protection. Good value.
