I have found the price is normally in direct relationship to speed.
I have a very slow mile marker. It is about 3 years old and have used it over 60 times. It is very slow compared to others, but it still functions to get me and others out of trouble. I figure it is about time to replace the cable.
both steel cable and hi tech ropes have down falls and good points.
Heat from the winch doesn't effect the cable like the rope.
Rocks don't as adversely affect the cable like the rope.
wire You don't have to worry about the rope kinking like the cable
You don't have to pull strands of enbedded out of you hands with the rope.
Both can break, cable flies rope drops.
8-9k is about all you need for a jeep.
