Synthetic winch rope

Recommended Posts

Looking to replace the cable on my winch with synthetic winch rope.

Any recommendations? 

Its a Warn M8000 winch that usually takes 100 feet of line.

I will have to put a good polished Hawse fairlead on too as synthetic rope doesn’t like roller fairleads.

I have tried the cheap amazon rope and have bought the warn brand synthetic line.  To be honest, I haven't noticed a big difference between the two.  On synthetic line, Its very hard to get the line wound tight enough so that on a hard pull it wont wedge down between the other coils.  Also, the synthetic line tends to shrink in diameter when pulled really tight.  Have had it jump out of the pulley and get wedged when using a snatch block.  So my thoughts are go default for the thicker line.

Bought my last at KFI winches , was a good price and rope was as good as any I tried ... even against the “top of the line rope” so claimed by winch companies
