Umeds? is on a distinguished road
Talk about a "target group oriented" product! So, Harken Radial winches are intended for Cruisers only. Or rather, Harken Radial winches are intended for non-high-tech sheets and halyards. Great.

Funny thing though, when i was going through the catalog, that didn't really JUMP OUT at me. They now have the "Performa" range: "The Performa features a sandblasted drum optimized for halyard and sheeting applications using smaller high-tech racing lines."

I haven't received the winches yet, but i'm already wondering if i shouldn't have saved up a bit and "invested" on the Andersens...
