Just stripped the cable off winch for BF 750. I was thinking of changing to a strong rope type instead of the cable. Thring to get rid of all the sharp cables. Should i stick with the cable of try the rope if so what type?
I just changed out my Viper Max from steel cable to amsteel blue and replaced the roller fairlead with a hawse fairlead. Much nicer! Rope is very light, easy to handle, coils back onto winch easily too. As an added bonus, I weighed the rope/hawse fairlead combo on my postal scales before I mounted it, then weighed the steel cable/roller fairlead combo after I removed it- 4 lb. 15oz. lighter now. Not that big of a deal, but i did notice it lightened my steering up a little at low speed. Synthetic FTW!
