Google is getting VERY good at catching spun content so you'd better be talented at manual spins. If they DO catch you, of course they'll spank you... and hard. So anything you use spun content on is inherently AT RISK. Worse yet... Google gets better at finding spun/poor content every year. So in the longrun you're screwed. I'd weight your other options and see if you couldn't find a cheaper source for manually hand written content.
I've ranked websites in the past with spun content, and now they are still on #1 position of google. First year (2014) google found me because my spun was really bad, many paragraphs were just copied and my position drop from #2 to around #20 after a panda update. Later I cleaned all my text with better spun (I didn't buy any article!), my ranking went up again, and with more backlinks I reached #1 and it is still there
From personal experience Spin Rewriter is the best! like I still use it today. Its so easy to use (Just copy paste and the program do everything) Because of this tool I managed to schedule content and articles for 3 years, do you know how much time and money I’ve saved?!?! A LOT!!! Also i high recommend you pick their mothly plan if you are still in doubt
