Question How to spool synthetic rope?

So that when you winch your Jeep, it doesn't cut deep into the spool itself?

Under a load, 500 lbs. or so, but so far as I can tell from my personal experience with both, synthetic doesn't have the problems from the rope digging down that wire rope does.

Synthetic rope digging into the steel winding drum? Never heard of that. Same with steel cable.

That was super fast answer Jerry!

I guess I will have to winch my Jeep 100 feet with parking brakes on. Should be one time deal only.

Not into the drum .. but the spool itself.

Make sure and leave SOME line on the spool. Otherwise, it's a LOT easier than with wire- as Jerry said, the line won't dig into itself, so just mostly let it do its own thing, with some load on it- a light handbrake dig is perfect- Mark W.

Who said anything about rope digging into the drum? We're talking about the rope being pulled down through its layers.
