I have not seen one of Tom's winders in person, so I cannot comment on it.

I'm a left-eye shooter, and I recently acquired the Motor M for my M6.
Like Paul, I'm just as happy as I can be with it.  I've never been as
comfortable with my camera as now, and I've been an M shooter for 16 years.
It is quiet, swift, and the size is perfect.
