Have just had cranked stanchions fitted so looking to buy some grown up winch handles.
Has anyone got advice on which is the best locking handle for a Contessa with older Lewmar 42ST winches?

Lewmar One Touch - 10 inch (I think)

Lewmar one-touch are really nice to use but at a price. For the last few years I have been using the red plastic "Titan" winch handles, which last well enough and are much lighter so don't damage the boat when dropped or wacked against the gelcoat.
