Amsteel Blue Synthetic Winch Rope - Info and Reviews
Blue Winch Rope - The unparalleled benefits of synthetic winch lines
has made AmSteel the number one choice for competition rock crawlers and
off-roaders around the world. Made from the revolutionary AmSteelŪ-Blue 12
strand UHMWPF (ultra high molecular weight polyethylene fiber). These
ropes yield the maximum in strength to weight ratio and while being
stronger than steel cables and much more buoyant. Amsteel Blue
synthetic fiber rope has a higher breaking strength than that of steel
cable of the same diameter, but weighs less than 1/6. It won't get all
wound-up like cable when unspooled. It can't develop sharp frays, and it
doesn't conduct electricity or heat (won't freeze your hands in winter).
It won't rust, doesn't kink, doesn't recoil, doesn't stretch, and unlike
steel cables, synthetic lines store zero energy under stress and in the
event of breakage; they do not exert the dangerous and violent whiplash
action that a snapped steel. Ropes come with a thimble loop on one end and
a chain link for the spool end and feature a 10' abrasion guard that roll
directly onto spool with no tangles
or mess. The guard is flexible and compact enough to wind in with
the rope. Comes right back out when you unspool. Move the guard along the
length of the rope to guard against rock outcrops, etc. when winching.

fairlead, specifically designed for synthetic winch rope use, to prevent
pinching or other damage from a steel roller fairlead.
