This is the most advanced winch replacement line for steel and other synthetic winch ropes. We started with a rigid non- metal eye. Strong as steel but safer and lighter than a heavy steel thimble. We coated the entire rope in heavy Gator-ized vinyl armor resulting in no line fuzzing and better protection against abrasion, sand and ultraviolet light. We color banded the winch every 10 feet so you can quickly gauge the amount of rope you have out at any time. We even included a Gator-Jaw soft shackle and removable Bubba Rope Life Guard for added rope protection. Finally, since we hand make every winch line here in our factory why not offer to repair them too!
