What are the advantages & disadvantages of the Recon over something like the Warn 9.5 cti-s with new synthetic (sp) cable?
To be honest, the advantage is price. The Recon has received great reviews and I couldn't find anything negative about it. I haven't used it yet. Maybe in a couple of months I'll be able to give my own review on it. I can't endorse something that I haven't put to a test yet.
I got the Recon with wired and wireless remotes for $475.00
Recon 10,500 lbs Winch which is fully waterproof and has a Wireless Remote and Synthetic Rope + an Accessory Kit comprising of a 10ft Tree Saver / Tow Strap, 2 Bow Shackles and a Snatch Block and Free Neoprene Waterproof Cover.
If it fails, the Warn 9.5 is next.
