Synthetic winch rope

Just want opinions on brands, do you guys feel there's a difference and what if so between brands. Prices are kinda in the same ballpark across the board. I'm lookin to replace cable on a 8500 superwinch. Any helps appreciated thanks.

I really like winchline.com/ by Viking Offroad! Great customer service and awesome products. I have a 50' on my winch and also carry a 50' extension. I have one of there recovery kits i keep in the back.

Viking Offroad 3/8" synthetic rope for me too. I've used Viking in two different winches and my first Viking rope held up beautifully for the 5-6 years it was on my winch until that Jeep was stolen two years ago.

Amsteel is the strongest but Tenex is also very strong and a fraction of the price.
