Isaac | Owner

"I used to work in construction and landscaping, so I've seen my fair share of ratchet straps, winches, and similar rigging gear. I started Winch Central because I've seen some nasty accidents due to crappy rigging or poor practice.

I wanted to be able to recommend good equipment that's SAFE and also provide resources for how its used. I handle the research side of things here as well as product selection for gear reviews."

Wardell | Writer

Wardell has been with us only a short time but has been exceptionally helpful with our marine-based articles.

He has two jet skis that he regularly takes out and used to work at a Marina back in high school. He's seen what sort of toll corrosion and sun exposure can take on rigging equipment. 

Molly | Writer

Molly found us by accident while starting out her writing career. She used to write technical documents for a company that manufactured planetary gear systems that were used in, you guess it - winches!

She wanted more freedom in her writing and felt right at home with the topics we cover. We're extremely grateful to have her onboard!

Jessie | Editor

Jessie ensures we don't miss something important and also helps design all the graphics you see on our site.

He's an organization fiend and extremely tech savvy, which keeps us on track. If you find a typo on our site, blame Jessie.

Steven | Brand Manager

Known as the “web guy” behind the scenes, Steven keeps the technical aspects up and running and has been our brand manager since the early days. His favorite hobbies include golf and spending time with his basset hound, Hank.

How Does This All Work? 

Our website's primary goal is compiling the best products on the market so you can skip the agonizing leg work of sifting through every customer review. We spend our time searching for the best products, creating engaging content, ad recommending the best products on the market to get the job done. 

How Are Products Chosen? 

Choosing products to review is no small feat – especially when there are thousands of winches, hoists, jacks, and hitches on the market. 

We scour through the internet to determine what products are the most buzzed-about and see what's trending on IH8Mud and other vehicle forums in the winch space. If people are talking about it, we want to provide an in-depth review, so you know whether it's worth your money or not. 

Who Writes Content? 

Our content creators consist of a small, carefully curated team of different skill sets and interests to provide reviews that appeal to a large audience.

Whether you consider yourself a winch-genius or a beginner, we'll be able to provide an option for you.

How Does Winch Central Make Money? 

While browsing our website, you’ll see advertisements, which help keep us afloat. That’s one way that we make money. Another method of income for our website is through the Amazon Affiliate program.

For products that are purchased through links that we share, we receive a small commission. This allows us to continue making content for our audience. 

Do We Get Paid to Review Products? 

No, we do not. We have received winches before for review. When this happens, we will keep the product. However, we don't get paid to review products. 

Do Brands Pay Us for Better Rankings? 

Absolutely not. At Winch Central, we are dedicated to the relationship we've built with our audience. Accepting payment for better rankings would be detrimental to that relationship.
