I'm seen a few people who are good at pedaling the winch, and they didn't need a brake to keep the line from fouling on the drum. If that's what you're doing, you don't need a brake.

Chances are that you will eventually let other people use the winch, and they may make a mess of the line. That's never fun.

I always wanted my winches to be "launch and walk away". I found most people switched all their attention to the plane as soon as it was off the line, and the winch had to fend for itself.
