Amsteel Blue Synthetic Winch Rope


(click images for large view)

U.S. Made Amsteel Blue synthetic fiber rope has a higher breaking strength than that of steel cable of the same diameter, and remarkably 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, or doesn't store energy. Need we say more!

UV protection coated.
Lock-stitched splicing.
10' abrasion guard included. 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.
We recommend one of our larger than stock winch hooks - Self-Locking, Mega, Big Red, or Yellow (as the loop of the rope nestles in a heavy-duty thimble, the clevis opening on your stock hook will probably be too narrow to fit it).
We also highly recommend our aluminum Hawse fairlead (HD or SL), specifically designed for synthetic winch rope use (see below). Do not use a roller fairlead to guide your winch rope. It's simple - have the right equipment, so everything works as designed.

AmSteel Blue is the latest development of HMPE fiber in a twelve-strand braided rope utilizing Parallay design with proprietary blue urethane coating. Synthetic winch rope was introduced to the off-road vehicle markets in the 1990ís. It has rapidly become a must-have accessory for both hard-core rockcrawlers and off-road enthusiasts.

Heavy-duty rope thimble.

Note: Our ropes are professionally spliced and crimped.
Extra-large terminal end, with rope taped prior to being crimped into the terminal.
Note: As with cable, we recommend keeping a minimum of 8 wraps of synthetic line on the winch drum at all times.


We strongly recommend upgrading to a billet aluminum Hawse fairlead to prevent pinching or other damage from a steel roller fairlead. See aluminum fairlead selections below.
