Unlike Harken's Rewind Radial Electric Winch, the Seldén winch uses a proprietary handle with a button located atop its handgrip. The winch sheets in just like a normal two-speed, but when it comes time to ease the line, push the button and the winch reverses, paying out the sheet. The winches are all stainless steel.
For the racer, says Alexander, it's a pretty useful feature. Once you get your trim set, you can easily ease out a turn or two to power through a wave, then get right back in the groove by cranking in the same number of turns.
