Servicing is WAY cheaper than buying a full spare...
If your current gear only needs regular service then buying a whole winch for spares is overkill. Tear down the existing gear, clean with kerosene, replace pawls and springs as necessary and you are good to go. The whole shebang is less than $20. A little more if you have more winches. (We have 10 on board) Of course if you just really want the new winch cuz it's a good deal, get it. You'll feel better.
