Is the Stancor relay worth it?

OK guys I'm having a trouble with my 7.3,,, glow plug relay is gone again this is the 3rd in 5 years 1 Napa and 2 OEM. Is there something else I should be checking? It is an 02 with 96k on it, only gets driven a couple of times a week. Batteries are 2 years old and load test good with my crappy load tester. I can only find older posts on the Stancor relay and it left me wondering did I miss, 1: it's common knowledge that i should have one already? Or 2: they were causing problems and I should stay away?
any help would be great. I spend most of my time on the 6.0 side of this forum because I never worry about the 7.3 truck don't rat me out over there

I have the stancor on my red truck. For what they cost and how much more huge they are compaired to the stock one, I wont waste my time or money on a stock relay.

It was a high of -8 here yesterday so I skipped dinner (so the motor could cool completly) so I could see if it would actually start as I had help if it didn't. Waited 45 seconds and lit it. Didn't start any harder than if it was 50 out. I'm impressed. Wish I had done it ten years ago.

The Stancor relay is the best mod I have done to my truck bar none... truck starts down to zero (about the coldest it will get in SE Mass) unaided no problem. Worth every penny.
