Any of the following listed conditions should be cause for rope replacement.
* In running ropes, six randomly distributed broken wires in one rope lay, or three broken wires in one strand in one rope lay.
* In pendants or standing ropes, evidence of more than one broken wire in one rope lay.
* Abrasion, scrubbing or peening causing loss of more than 1/3 the original diameter of the individual wires.
* Evidence of rope deterioration from corrosion.
* Severe kinking, severe crushing, or other damage resulting in distortion of the rope structure.
* Evidence of any heat damage resulting from a torch or arc caused by contact with electrical wires.
* Reduction from nominal diameter of more than 1/32" for diameters up to and including 3/4". Marked reduction in diameter indicates deterioration of the core resulting in lack of proper support for the load carrying strands. Excessive rope stretch or elongation may also be an indication of internal deterioration.
* Evidence of "bird caging" or other distortion resulting in some members of the rope structure carrying more than others.
* Noticeable rusting or development of broken wires in the vicinity of attachments.
Those are standard wire rope replacement criteria. You've got a severe kink in there. Either shorten your cable or replace completely. You should be able to get a new replacement cheap from someone who changed over to synthetic.
