NO MORE METAL
When there is no need for metal, let's GET RID OF METAL! During a recovery, there is always the possibility of line failure. If one occurs, metal becomes projectiles and can damage vehicles and injure people in them. The Groove Lead allows for a recovery completely metal-less. If we are connecting the winchline to a soft shackle, the hook becomes unnecessary.
Any soft winch line up to 1/2" works with the Groove Lead. A simple Brummel splice allows the eye to slip easily into the groove. If damage to the line occurs during an extraction, a quick splice and you are back in business. No need to fiddle with metal when doing a trail repair.
NO ONE LIKES A DANGLER
Does your line dangle out front? Are people pointing and laughing? The Groove Lead shuts down all those haters, tucking in the line and protecting it, when aggressive rubbing against hard surfaces occurs. Plus it just looks so sleek! No more snagging or smashing the line.
From birth to finished product, the manufacturing process covers less than 150 miles.

Winching Will Never Be The Same
A casual dinner conversation between Yankum Ropes and Nate Pickel from the Dirt Lifestyle, gave way to the idea, that is the Groove Fairlead. This idea will change the way true off-roaders will decide how to be best prepared when going out on the trail.
