Which Winch ?

Hello.

A friend will buy my 300$ cheap 12.000 lbs china winch in some weeks for the same price that I paid for it some months ago.
Now I want a new and faster winch.
Which winch will be ok for me?

I saw the Superwinch EP9.0. It has a good cable speed and the brake isn´t in the drum (good for synthetic winch rope), the pice is also very good.
Is this a good winch and a good brand?

Is there a 12.000 lbs winch on the market with a similar price and cable speed? Sometimes some buddies 8k or 9k winches weren´t strong enough, but my cheap 12k winch did the job.

Do you know if I can buy a winch without the cable, solenoid box, fairlead and remote control to save some money on that way?
I have a HD solenoid under my hood that I can use with all winches with a series wound engine.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not the expert but I do have some advise for you. Take a look at the Viper its seems to be a good winch with speed and thats from reading just about everything you can read on winches. I'm also in the market for a winch and have posted a thread asking for some advise on a good purchase. But the Viper seemed to be a little faster then the rest, except for the warn winch which was the fastest one, but get ready to dig deep in your pocket for it.
