Our Fairlead isn't like every other Fairlead on the market, and our winch ring is no different. We did not want to create another winch ring that does the same thing as every other.
One major downside of a winch ring is FRICTION. The pulling line often spins the winch ring instead of sliding around it. This causes friction on the shackle holding the winch ring. We designed ours to be offset, which keeps the ring in place during tension, and encourages the pulling line to slide around the ring as it was intended.
