Hate to be that guy but is there a reason you're looking at these winches in particular? The big flaw in these winches is the duty cycle which may or may not be an issue for you but 5% is pretty bad if you find yourself on a trail that requires a lot of winching.

If that's not a concern for you then I say synthetic all the way. Much higher margin of safety and, as you said, as long as you take care of your gear they will last a long time.
JK gear and gadgets just did an install and test of one of these. He did a cut away where he worked the crap out of it and everything seemed fine there.

I had one on my JKU that done awesome for me when I needed it. It got me out of some tough situations so I trust the brand. I'm down to these two and I have heard the the newer ZXR Badland brand was updated from the older style one like I had on my JKU. I haven't used the newer model, I've only had experience with the older model, which did great for me.
The Apex was on my list, and I was close to pulling the trigger until I found a smittybuilt for under $ I was going to jump on the Apex at $ before that. Just the cost of the synthetic line is enough to justify $ of the price right there. I would say the extra $ could easily be justified based on the fact that you are buying a newer upgraded version of a winch.

One thing JK Gear and gadgets did recommend is the replacement policy on it from HF since they do only have a 90 day warranty on them.
