ORO Recovery Gear

I'm eventually going to throw some X-Line on my winch for safety sake and since I've heard how great it is, I figured I'd see if anyone knew anything about their recovery straps and tree savers. All they list is that they're orange, and UV protected, and some other stuff but no load ratings or anything. Anyone?

Stick with 100' of 3/8" synthetic X-line and you won't need to worry about load ratings. I seem to recall my 3/8" is rated over 19K lbs. breaking strength

ORO X-line is rated at 18,000 lbs. There are other synthetic ropes out there such as Masterpull Superline II which are rated quite a bit higher(26,500 lbs), but I don't know what the other pro's and con's are.

Just remember synthetic lines need to be protected from UV light (the Sun) or the load ratings become useless. So put that winch cover on!

Synthetic ropes have been used for many years at sea on large ships and they sit out in the sun on a daily basis. While I'm not going to say UV is not a factor, I don't believe it's a significant-enough factor to worry that much about it. Witness years of exposure by synthetic ropes on ocean-going ships.

I have 2 wheeling buddies who have synth lines, and they see a lot of sun on them with no ill affect. I think the uv thinggy is a urban legend on the line thinggy. Here in SoCal we are the king of UV dammage, a set of windshild wipers will not go past a summer without cracking and it seems the winch lines are ok.

As long as it is UHMWPE rope you're correct. But there are a few other kinds of synthetic lines out there. Protecting your junk is never a bad idea Mr. Bransford.

Alot of good info here on the winch lines. I think he is also asking about the recovery straps and tree savers. Anybody?

I wish I could help you NoUse but all my recovery gear is Warn or ARB.

Thanks for the help guys. Yeah, I was wondering about the tree savers and stuff, but the synthetic rope opinions work also. I think I'll just be sticking with my steel for a while since I can't find any synthetic in the 150' length anyway. Thanks for your help.
