Roller fairlead with synthetic rope?

I have a plow setup for my Brute 750 and noticed today when I got done that the cable was getting frayed and the hawse fairlead now has a nice notch in it. Is it worth getting the roller fairlead and the synthetic rope as well? Another thought was to just get the roller fairlead cut back some of the existing cable and repair it. Any ideas appriciated.

What I would do is take an old hockey puck drill a hole thru the middle then take the cable and thread it thru the hole that will save your rollers from the hook notch you have, and help save your cable after you cut the bad area out. cheaper then replacing everything.

a roller fairlead is much better than the hawse fairlead imo. the syn rope is really nice , way better than cable but it is kinda expensive

Also, if you go the warns site, they have a roller fairhead that has a super-large lower roller on the bottom. I am thinking about that because even with my regular roller fairhead, my cable is fraying.
