Lewmar Traveller

I am thinking of replacing my OEM Schaefer traveller on my 1985 Pearson 34 with a Harken or Lewmar. The Lewmar looks good, a little less $$. My two experiences with Lewmar have been a little troubling. 3 years ago installed some rope clutches that needed removal & replacement because did not quite work right. 2 years ago installed a folding wheel & the hub had to be replaced because it was so poorly machined. In both cases Lewmar was very good about replacement and I am very pleased with the products in service. But, the initial quality was off.
Any experience with Lewmar travellers, Size 2?
