Polished aluminum is better than cast steel/iron because most of the ferrous stuff has a coarse casting finish that is not good for the rope even if it is painted.

x2 the aluminum fairleads well tend to be gentle on the rope over a long period of time. the cast steel/iron fairleads will quickly wear out the rope.

If its replacing a steel cable make sure to de-bur the drum, as it will cut up your new rope.
