For Synthetic Certainly... just watch a couple vids on how to pull the rope splice apart and how to splice it back again. Everyone who runs syn rope should learn how to splice it for trail fixes. Sooo easy.

Without doing that is it possible? No simple way just to remove the hook?

The only other way is to cut the hook off.

New rope is expensive. Olympus Offroad has good deals on replacement rope.
That being said splicing the rope is not a big deal. So changing out hooks is pretty easy. Once you get that original hook off you can buy hooks or lugs that use a pin to connect. I swap out between a Factor55 flatlink and Warn Epic hook regularly.

Yeah, my goal was Factor 5 and bought one. Looked at new ropes but at $285 for new rope, forget it for now.

Will wait until its time fir new rope. Guess a hook can't be that bad.

The hook is definitely more convenient when doing a lot of winching but the Flatlink fits sooo nice against the fair lead.
