Winch Rope

Wire cable versus synthetic winch rope? It’s a question for the ages—but not really. The answer is pretty simple and boils down to what you want from your winch. Are you a recreational user or someone who winches for a living? Truth is, there are pros and cons to both steel winch cable and synthetic winch ropes. We have experience with both and will boil down the issues to help you be better informed about what to use. Winching is something that no one really wants to do, but when you need to winch, you really need to winch. It’s typically not optional. Sometimes you can lend a tug from your buddy’s vehicle on the trail and get back on track, but when you are really stuck, winching is much more precise, controllable, and safer.

Winches don’t do much without a rope or cable. The problem is that using a winch to move a vehicle with a steel cable loads a very small and flexible structure with a huge amount of weight. That weight turns into kinetic energy, a type of energy that can be very dangerous to humans if it is released suddenly. The idea behind using synthetic rope in a winch is that the synthetic rope under load has much less weight, and thus much less kinetic energy. So, when a rope breaks—as opposed to a steel cable—the rope, when the kinetic energy is released, wreaks much less damage to nearby things (including people) than steel cable does.
