Manual Windlass- Vetus Ursus vs. Lofrans Royal

Manual Windlass- Vetus Ursus vs. Lofrans Royal

I am looking at both of these windlasses to install on my C&C 36. Can anyone out there give me opinions on either one or both. Which is the more reliable? What experiences have you had with either?
Any info would be helpful in making my decision.

I do not have any experience, but am also considering the Lofrans. If you make a decision or learn any other information, please share. I am surprised no one on this forum has any comment of information.

I have the Lofrans Tigre as yet uninstalled, but it is both a manual and an electric windlass, which I consider the best option for a 40 footer.
