Thanks for the tip!

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

Indy 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.

Jerry Bransford 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.

How to spool synthetic rope?

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