Another issue is the line type. I've mentioned in another post that Andersen winches do not support regatta braid. The issue isn't the guide, but the stripper that is supposed to remove the line from the top of the winch as you tighten the line. Regatta braid binds up and can damage the winch. I don't know if this is an issue for other manufacturers' products.
