Synthetic Winch line on traditional 10.k

Searched through vender, searched through website. Anyone replace traditional winch cable with synthetic? Recommendations? Things to avoid? Vender deals?
Thanks..

Ton of shit, and not listing it all..

I put a Masterpull on my 9.5Ti. You want to make sure the drum on your winch does not get hot during use as it can degrade synthetic lines.

Some build info here:

That I can?t guarantee. Hell.. traditional summer is 100+ even before the drum. Any superwinchers have a heat issue?

I have a Ramsey Patriot 9500 UT. When it was new, I pulled the cable and replaced it with a Viking synthetic line with a thimble on it. Easy and no issues. Sold off the unused cable and electronic RF remote to pay for the synthetic line.

I have since performed numerous winchings of other vehicles - never my own unless you count the time I winched my E46 back up the driveway after a failed bump start with dead battery.

My favorite winching was bringing a Ford Exploder up the stairs at Slick Rock. All I got for that was two friggen budwisers but the experience and the video I shot are worth way more.

More recently, I carefully unstitched the Viking thimble and picked up a Factor55 FlatLink, synthetic rope spool and a Fast Fid.

Going together was just like the Factor55 video on the fast fid. I have yet to perform a winching with the new setup but the fast fid is always in the glovebox now in case of a break. Great tool.
