I have steel cable on my winch. It's old and starting to fray in one section. Looking to buy synthetic winch rope but don't want to spend more than I did on the winch. Anyone know a good quality 3/8 100ft or less syn winch rope for under 200?
After having my "cheap option" Tuff Stuff rope on my winch for almost 8 years... And, pulling a tone with it... I'm still happy I got what I got. The only reason I got the spare line from Custom Splice was a killer deal on it at the time... And, I figure eventually, I'll need it.Upping your budget $50 to be $250 is a small premium to pay for reliable gear. Even on custom splice, Amsteel Blue is $240 for a 3/8" x 100'.
You wheel conservatively, and maybe you would be ok with inexpensive line that has a lower rating. That maybe is too expensive for me, and so my outlook is to buy quality gear with higher ratings because it is cheaper than the repair to a damaged vehicle. Both are conservative outlooks, but each places value on different objectives.
