This is just like asking should I use synthetic engine oil or not...so not sure I should even respond but you know I can't stay out of a good oil/lube discussion after being in the biz 14 years

There is no reason NOT to use synthetic gear oil; as a matter of fact, it has many advantages (cooler temps, which leads to increased component life, plus less friction, better low temp fluidity vs mineral oils, basically same inherent benefits as synthetic engine oils plus better resistance to foaming, etc).

Just be sure to add your friction modifier if whatever you put in there needs it.
