A very good customer of Off Road Consulting ( We will call him Bubba ) went to an event in another state in 2018 and needed to use his winch as he was hung up on an obstacle. The trail guides for this event jumped into action as Bubba remained in the driver seat.....you can trust your trail guide right? What Bubba didn't know was that the trail guide became "Annoyed" at the sliding motion of the abrasion guard that is on the synthetic winch line. The trail guide decided, without checking with Bubba, that the best thing to do would be to put a knot in the winch line to keep the abrasion guard from sliding and getting in their way...... Bubba, being unaware, began winching, which caused the knot to cinch tight...and tighter and tighter until....... Unfortunately for Bubba, this knot caused a weak spot in his synthetic line. The winching caused this knot to get tighter and tighter until it broke. Guess who has to buy a new winch line? Not the guide! Moral of the story don't put knots in your winch line! The abrasion guard is there for a reason as it is supposed to slide down the winch to protect from elements on the trail. Don't trust your safety, vehicle and gear with just anybody. Make sure those who are "Helping" you are knowledgeable and be cautious as to how they handle your gear. Educate yourself. Bubba knew that the abrasion guard was there for a reason and could have gotten himself out of the situation safely and with his winch line intact. If you aren't familiar with certain gear take the time to learn about it.
