    Thanks for sharing these.

    Same as RobF They look great, In fact I've already used one pulling some tree tops with the little kabota.

    I made a loop using a rewoven figure 8. , but I think I'll make up a fid and do the recommended eye splice.

    I wonder if a 150 grain 30 Cal will fit into a length of 3/8 copper tube ? ;-)

    Samson rope, a competitor to this manufacturer and maker of Amsteel Blue, has some good videos showing the technique.

    I've always wondered how they arrived at 21xD for the length? 20D + a little for the point?

    Anyways, I'll have a bunch to play with soon.

    One box left of eight 1/4x40' Marlow lines and a mystery line (new) about 5/16" by 50' (not sure on exact size, but you get 8 same and one oddball line for $100 delivered)

    Thanks!

    I can't find any bend radius data on these. Can I use them with a generic snatch block intended for steel rope?

    Yes you sure can. Just watch out for any sharp spots. Splicing this stuff is easy-peasy once you've done it a few times. And don't forget to lock-stitch the splices if you have a lot of fluctuation in the loads.

    You shouldn't have any problem with that. Give 'em hell!

    I got my set of lines and very happy with them I love good rope.
    Quick question, you say rated for 15,000 lbs is that working load or breaking strength? If working load, what safety factor do they use on something like that?

    With winch line it will almost certainly be minimum breaking strength. Safety factor is dependent on usage, but generally 4:1 is good for load lifting. 5:1 or greater if you're hanging from the line.

    The rating is more than likely to match it with a winch. If you lifted 15k lbs with it it should hold, but that's not really a safe margin for lifting anything.

    All the winch stuff I have dealt with has shown me that the winch manufacturers take a winch and line rated for X, pull the free spool out of it and rate it X/4 for a hoist application.

    a 5000 lb winch magically becomes a 1200 lb hoist with the freespool lever removed and a new sticker applied.
