would have to be tossed at the end of the job (unless you're  saving the 
tram line with the guy grip for reuse at a future date).   I don't know 
how the manufacturer feels about using a guy grip designed  for 7-strand 
cable on wire rope of the same diameter; the manufacturer's  Prime 
Directive applies here.  Maybe there are grips designed  specifically for 
wire rope.

        You guess'ter, Chester.  Preformed Grips can only be used with the 
wire rope that they're designed for;  eg. EHS for EHS, utility grade for 
grade, etc. A Preform is designed for  a specific configuration, lay, number 
of strands, length, etc. and they're  not compatible with other wire ropes of 
the same size.
