My 2 cents...
First, money was never an object in either that I chose.
I looked at the cable system, but, shy-ed away due to dealing with the routing, so as, to prevent it from getting burned by the headers. Besides, wouldn't look "right" to my thinking.
The hydraulic system although solving the "burn" potential, needed available space and mounting locations.
In the end, I chose a roller-ized version of "Z" bar for simplicity, the "KISS" premise, and more commensurate with a vintage look. There are HD units in the market that are very robust that, unlike the OEMs, tended to bend/break.
