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.

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 have used my winch 3 times and if I don't put the cable back on and get a rope I'm going to use my fairlead because it's fine and I have seen where you can get the rope with the same fairlead.

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.
