Synthetic winch rope and roller fairleads?

Can I use a synthtic winch rope with the roller fairlead that came with my Milemarker winch or is the roller fairlead only intended to be used with wire cable? (the winch came with 3/8 cable but I am changing it for a used synthetic rope which I have at home).

Are only Hawse Fairleads supposed to be used with synthetic ropes?

I think I have seen people using roller fairleads with synthetic whinch ropes but I am not sure whether those are specially mae for ropes or not.

Thanks in advance
Santiago

Santiago, the difference I would be concerned about is catching the rope at the upper or lower ends of the rollers. That can cut or damage the rope.

Santiago, hay una discusión que trata de eso mismo reciente, no tiene más de un mes. Chequea la página más hacia abajo y la verás.
