Thank you
I recommend the LSZ. I don't do much sail work, but right after I purchased my new sails, a slug caught and I used the winch and RIIIIP! I got some heavy Dacron and sewed a small patch with my LSZ-1 (the blue one) then put a new grommet and it was better than new. I also put zig zag on edges someties to make the piece look better. It's worth the extra money in my opinion. I put the heavy duty balance wheel with the hand crank and did some "Armageddon" sewing without electricity a few weeks ago just to see if I could - it worked great.
