Snatch Blocks ????

Do I need anything special to work with a synthetic line?

Has anybody ever had a snatch block damage a synthetic line?

Im seeing a wide range in prices on them, anybody care to share what they use, or recommend a good bang for the buck option?

Thanks in advance for your input.

I'd also like to know about use with synthetic line.

I have a few of the ARB snatch blocks. I can say I've treated them roughly and they're still holding up fine.

Can't go wrong with anything from Crosby, but you'll pay.

I believe this Billet4X4 - 4x4 Recovery Gear - Winches is where I got mine from. Look for something that's spec'd for your size line and rated at twice your winch rating. Have used mine a couple times with the expected results. I also grabbed one of their tree savers.

I bought Crosby shackles, because that's what the internet says you have to use, and have had zero issues.

Spend the money up front for decent recovery gear. Not much worse than broken gear/tools when you need them.

make sure the pulley is smooth and has not been used with a steel line. I have used a cheap HF snatch block many times with my synthetic Warn line and never an issue but I check it each time to make sure the pulley is smooth.

This ^^^^^^^ I run a 235' fishing vessel, We use up to 1-1/2" spectra or an equivalent, All the sheaves in our blocks are SS, I don't believe that is necessary in this case, but a burr free sheave is, and as stated above, not a block that has used wire.

I have a pair of these in my recovery kit . I have hooked them up to an immobile Trac loader before and pulled an xj that was buried over it's roof in mud out with a 9k winch runnin synthetic line before. As long as your pulley wheel is copacetic with your type of line , you'll be good.

not as bad as Id thought. I mean, big pulley,shackle blocks are heavy , so if I were a pro crawler or technical buggy in the hammers and bein conscious of every ounce was vital I could justify the highest tech available .
