I found out that my old winch hook doesn't fit the new thimble on the new cable (too small), so I started calling around and someone suggested that I just use a shackle and forget the hook. What thoughts have ye?

Should work dandy. I kinda like the newer fancy winch hooks that cannot fall off whatever they are hooked to, but I guess not enough to plunk down cold hard for one. Yet.

What do you mean, because they have gates on them? Don't know if I've seen what you're talking about.
