Looks good, strong enough? Flimsy hook
on November 5, 2012
The box I received this rope in was labeled "12,500 pounds breaking strength". Considering a loose safety factor of 2x, this would be good for a 6000 pound winch. My 9500-pound Milemarker may be able to break it, not sure.
The price is unbeatable, nearly half of the competition. And much of the competition doesn't actually rate their rope other than to say "suitable for 6000 to 9000 pound winches" (for a 3/8 x 100 for example).
Another major flaw, the hook which is included (non-removable, you must saw it off) is clearly marked "WLL 2T" - - working load limit 2 tons or 4000 pounds. Would have been 4 stars rated, except I have to buy a better hook.
I guess I'll try it and hope it doesn't break when I need it the most. At least a synthetic line won't kill everybody standing around when it breaks. Sure worth a gamble at $129.
