Snatch block for synthetic line

I want to get a snatch block for my winch with synthetic line, does the syn rope use the same snatch blocks as wire rope or do I need something different?
Thanks

Most do. I have the ARB snatch block and my Viking 3/8" rope fits it just fine.

it does not matter but be sure it does not slip off the pully and that can damage the wire rope or the synth rope either way.

Look it's a 4.6!

I was told to only use a new snatch block or at least one that has not been galled up by wire rope previously.

I read that you can use the old snatch block, but you have to make sure to file and smooth down any sharp areas so it doesn't fray the line.
