Most sythetic line manufactures recomend a new fairlead, for the change over to synthetic line. Older/used fairleads, roller or hawse, will develope burrs and knicks that will prematurely wear the synthetic cable. I use an aluminum hawse failead. It looks good and is machined smooth so there is little friction against the line, even pulling at an angle.
This is where I got my fairlead from, a little cheaper.. They have an Ebay store as well, Sometimes thier stuuff is cheaper, through Ebay, than buying directly from them, But I couldn't find thier store when I just looked for it.
Hey you need to send the other one back to me, we did not mean to ship it to you. We have your account # and will just bill it to you if you don't. You know that's not very nice that you just kept it and did not tell us!
Please send it back to:

You can put the Amsteel blue on basically any winch. I know on my cheapo winch, it had a hole that you stuff the rope into and then jam a ballbearing down over the rope and into the hole. Well, the rope was too big to fit in the hole, so I just looped it around the drum and tied it real tight. Once you put some strain in the rope it will be very very hard to remove the rope from the drum.
Can you use the regular fairland if you have not used the steel cable yet? Or is the fairland made differently. Has anyone compaired the 2 together?.. Have not pulled anything with mine yet but it is installed on the bike?
I think the question with the regular fairlead is that the rope could potentially get in the side of the roller, and possibly get cut, I know the chances of that happening are slim to none, but you never know until it's too late.
