A buddy said he had to pull his whole winch line out and respool it before he used it. Is this really necessary? He has a cable but I have synthetic on order. Will I need to do it with the synthetic? And finally if we do, why is it necessary?

It is required so the first time you use it I see a load the outer cable doesn't bury itself in the rest of the loose cable on the spool.

Some guy the other day did his at 2 AM in a parking lot tied off to a light pole. Find something to tue off to after unspooling and get used to using the winch and make a couple of pulls resting the winch and letting your battery charge. Great learning experience.
