Synthetic winch line - best price
 
I don't want to cut corners on quality, but am looking for the best price/value on synthetic line for a winch. I just got a new 10k lbs winch, but it's metal line. New synthetic seems to cost about as much as the winch. Any advice?

Sailboat supply stores may have a better price. There are lots of different lines with different weight, strength, and stretch characteristics.

Look for Amsteel on ebay. It's going to be ~ $250, you need a hawse fairleed as well.

Try the Technora line that Brett from Jeep Swag sells here: http://www.jeepswag.com/winchline/index.html

I have the line on my Warn VR8000 and love it!

WhiskeyMike,

The synthetic line upgrade is an awesome one. All you'll need to do is un-spoil the wire cable and re-spoil the synthetic line back on. It's a lot lighter, stronger and safer to work with then a wire cable is.

The AmSteel Blue Synthetic 3/8 In x 100' Long Winch Line is one of the best on the market. High quality with out cutting any corners. Rated over 18,400 pounds your not cutting anything when it comes to using this line.

With your WF discount it the best price around. Just $243.41 to your door! You can't beat that for 3/8 in and 100 feet Synthetic line.

Let me know if you have any questions. Shot me a PM and I'd be happy to hook you up with the WF discount.

Master Pull in Ferndale WA will custom make you a really nice synthetic line in any color, diameter and length you want. They custom build them to order. Best price and quality I've found.

My 90 footer was under $200 with the polished aluminum fairlead, stainless steel thimble, heat guard, 3 foot line cover and heavy duty powercoated yellow slig hook.
Nice dark green color to match my JK too.

Took them 2 days to build the line and ship it to me.
Awsome service and high quality pre-streched line.

why not just use the steel.
Warn Industries - Synthetic rope vs steel rope: Which one is best?
i personally wont use synthetic line. i do alot more with my winch than just pulling people out of mud. and the abrasion resistance of steel fits my needs better. i would have been threw more than a couple synthetic lines just clearing all the trees after out last decent storm.

Some people immediately think synthetic rope is safer than steel rope. Although steel rope will store more potential energy, since it's made out of steel, it is less prone to abrasion (and possible fraying). The bottom line is that no matter which line you choose, you need to follow safe winching techniques and take all necessary safety precautions.

Bought my rope on Amazon [Amsteel Blue by Master Pull]

I won't go back to steel, I can use a tree saver or steel 3-4' extension to grab onto trees or what not. I'll splice it if I cut it, it's ease of use and safety greatly out weighs using steel for me.
