Synthetic winch lines

I'm not one to blow money on things just so I have a cooler name brand on my jeep than others.. I am ready to switch to synthetic winch line,, that old wire cable just sucks, and with 100ft of it it must weigh in at around 60 lbs. Synthetics weigh around 7 or 8 lbs.. And weight loss will save us lots of gas money over the long haul,,, I use my winch 2 or 3 times a year.. Not a lot... So which synthetic line do I really need? All advise is welcome !!

Me personally I like the master pull cables, the only downside is that the big ones I want are expensive but they have a 13k for around 165$ or so (I dont own one but a friend of mine does and it is really nice). I dont have a winch yet but its on my to do list and a synthetic rope is coming with it.

Any AmsteelBlue rope will do. There are a few two-layer ropes that have merit in certain applications, but if you have to ask the question then you likely don't need those.

Ordered Amsteel Blue yesterday. As we do mostly expedition/excursion type jeepin' I looked to the pro's for advise as well. Bill Burke uses Amsteel Blue, as do many other professional guides,
