If a combination of the slippery roller and the slippery rope won't allow the winching rope to turn the roller then the teflon was a good choice. If the rollers turn, maybe the next batch should be made out of delrin. I'll let you know as soon as we spool up the rope.
Cool! I am using a polished aluminum Marlin fairlead and it works great! Just always on the lookout for cool factor stuff!
