Believe me, the guys over at ComeUp Winch would be the first to admit their name may be laughable here in America but this Taiwanese company has been known around the world for making elevator hoists, safety equipment and industrial products for well over 40 years. In fact, they are the manufacturer of planetary gears and other components for most of the winches available today. An old friend of mine works here now and he persuaded me to give their new winch, which looks a lot like a Zeon a look and told me that they actually are the owners of the cone brake patent. But, what really caught my eye was their demo winch which was submerged under water to show just how well it's sealed.

Here are more pics from their display.

Cant wait to see the video on it working under water. While the design sure looks a lot like a zeon, I think it looks great and the components look good in the pictures. What is the difference in the cone brake?

Traditional winches have their brakes in the drum and the heat from it will melt synthetic line. Moving the brake to the outside of the unit keeps the drum cool, the rope safe and there are also other benefits you'd see including ease of pulling line. As far as the Zeon look goes, ComeUp reminded me they are the owners of the patent.

Well at worst they look like a viable alternative to the cheap imports out there. Any idea on the price point?
That name though :rolleyes2:

That name though :rolleyes2:A brief google search puts them on par with Warn or higher in price.

I️ looked at them a couple of years ago when I️ was winch hunting and just felt like for the money Iíd stick to Warn. I️ think the guy selling them was out of Dallas and at the time claimed to be the only dealer in the country.

LOL! Apparently, the characters that make the company name look like a C and a P or sound like "come" and "up" or something to that affect. Being that they've been around so long and are known internationally, the name won't be changing for the U.S. market.

Price is up close to the WARN range because they insist their product is on par with them. They also try hard to distinguish the fact that they are a Taiwanese company and NOT Chinese. I was told that they will offer versions of their winch that don't come with synth rope (biggest cost bump) or wireless remote which does help to lower the price by quite a bit.

They are actually offering their line up without any rope/wire at all. You buy just the unit/controler and put whatever line/cable you want on it. They say it is due to so many people automatically removing them to put on line and hooks that meet individual needs.

It is like buying a bare tool from Milwaukee or Dewalt.

Also, if you remember the Superwinch EP series, they were made by comeup. It was comeup's first line with the cone brake and was exclusively licensed by Superwinch. Once that ended, Comeup arrived on the US market.

i note that version also comes with a wireless remote and a wired remote. Warn is running rebate at the moment...on Platinum Zeon 10-s it is $200 rebate. But still seems this one is much cheaper. I am in the market at the moment so will check out a few reviews. Anyone here have one?

I just think the matte plastic looks cheap, gloss black would have set it off (not debating the winched actual capabilities just an observation).

Well I had made up my mind after reading the cheap winch vs warn winch thread. Now I've got another decision to make lol

Looks like a well thought out, well made design.

I am a firm believer in ComeUp. I found out about them at the Offroad Expo in Pamona several years ago and the whole idea of having the brake outside of the drum convinced me to give them a shot. That and the fact they are known world wide as being a top notch winch manufacturer. I am sure you have all heard about Arctic Trucks in Iceland, they run ComeUp exclusively on all their trucks.

I recently started a company that developed a new recovery product that is winch based. We chose a Comeup winch Seal Gen2 9.5 to do all our testing on and we must have pulled our line probably about 50-60 times since February and it has performed flawlessly. I just put a Seal Gen2 12.5 on my vehicle and I don't expect to ever have to change it. I will also be putting one on my CJ8 when I start building that up soon.

I found the pricing to be below Warn's, especially when you compare apples to apples with all the upgrades such as wireless remote and synthetic line. With the 12.5 that I got, I actually opted for the Naked version http://shop.comeupusa.com/p/seal-gen2-12-5n-naked-winch since I wanted to source my own winch line and I wanted to run Factor55 fairlead and Ultrahook.
