I'm curious about these, thanks for starting the topic. I have an ARB on my Amazon wish list, but I have not pulled the trigger on it. I was looking at a Smittybilt, but the reviews from people who have it say it's just a strap with a bungee cord inside and not a true snatch-strap.

Look up the group i used to be in.

Brazoria County Off-Road Recovery.

It got too "jeep-ish" so i left. It was also getting old breaking my stuff and funding the repairs... anyways

We used the hell out of them on every 4x4 vehicle imaginable with outstanding results.

They sponsored our group and offered us discounts.

After more research theses recovery ropes look like a great idea! I may need to add one to my recovery gear bag soon!

I'm very happy with my ASR Ultimate recovery rope and soft shackle. Doesn't fold down as small as ARB and some of the other straps (it's a rope), but awesome quality and customer service. Haven't needed it yet and hoping to keep it that way!

Yeah the whole kinetic energy thing is amazing. I have used and seen first hand, what they are capable of. I carry a Master Pull Super Yanker! The best part is your very unlikely to break anything, unlike a stiff strap, that goes CLUNK, BOOM as you tear off the bumper of the other vehicle.

This. I have an ARB strap that I used to pull out another truck. A very big truck and even though I made the line taught I just felt I was going to pull MY bumper off. I frayed it somehow so I keep it around for crap use in my truck like dragging a tree a couple of weekends ago, but invested in a Spartan Rope that came with a soft shackle and a bag. Love the idea much more of just pulling and letting the kinetic energy of the rope do the work instead of my transmission.
