Hey mate, probably the wrong section for this one, Try general patrol dis etc. But in my opinion, I think you should use a std "slotted" type alloy fair lead, that way you can distribute the rope evenly across the drum.

i am pretty sure the guide hole fairlead needs to be atleast 1.5 meters infront of the winch for it to work otherwise it would just bunch up the rope in the middle



and yeah , wrong section

If you don't 'bird-nest' the cable onto the barrel you will have problems when you go to do a winch - the rope can bind and/or be damaged as it is pulled through the wrappings to the barrel.
