Comments: Much better than using a cable, safer as well. The safety thimble is a clever piece that will prevent you from winching your hook through the fairlead.

Comments: I have the combo line in green.
I replaced my orignal steel cable after breaking it in the rocks. I always carried reservations about the safety of the steel line. I also hated the unfriendly nature associated with handling it. I have made many pulls with this rope with 0% issues. I also have the safety thimble, which i love - I will be getting another matching rope for the rear of my rig soon enough !!

Viking Offroad 3/8" X 100' Viking Fire Line with Winch Safety Thimble
Price: $290.00
Pros: Light weight, High temperature synthetic rope
Cons: Not quite as strong as the regular temperature version
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought this rope because I wanted a synthetic rope that was high temperature resistant and I didn't like the idea of using wire rope. The safety thimble was added as a safety option. The installation was simple.

I'll add more after I've used it some.
