Ok guys/gals, I've been looking into making a switch to synthetic line, but have been getting mixed opinions. A couple of months ago I jumped on a deal I found on a Superwinch TS9500 steel cable winch, the price was too go to pass up at the time and I figured I could switch out the cable later if I wanted to. I mainly want to do the switch to save a little weight and for the added safety. After doing some research, it sounds like it could potentially lead to other problems like over heating. The product profile page on Superwinch's website says that they don't recommend using synthetic line on certain drums on their winches (they offer a gray drum and a black drum, both have different ratings). Although, it seems like people are making the switch all the time with no problems. I've tried contacting Superwinch to get more detail but they haven't gotten back to me. Can someone enlighten me on this subject? Please and thank you.
