Need stuff for new winch: rope and superwinch wide hawse fairlead

Who has the best price on rope? I need a lot (like 125-150ft of 3/8th) and I also need a hawse fairlead which is wider for a superwinch (husky width, not warn width).

Ron

These guys I think are the best:

Last time I checked they weren't the cheapest. Ebay used to have the cheapest deals. But, call them and say you saw them at KOH on Bucks yellow truck and ask for a racing discount. They will hook you up as best they can. Good people.

The best price I've seen on rope is from Custom Splice on eBay. The best rope for the money I've seen is from winchline.com. Columbia River Off Road has a nice Hawse fairlead with a Delrin insert but I don't know if it's wide enough for your application. Worth a look.

Ron, I have a superwinch aluminium hawse fairlead left over from the BWO days which is available so cheap it might even make you smile!

And you don't need more than 80' imo (and you have less power on the portion you will use the most at 125'+).

Matt, I'll take the fairlead if for some crazy reason Ron doesn't want it.

thanks,
charles

Charles, good point on the length of rope. 80' is good on most winches that will take 125'. Unless you really don't pull anything with it. I buy 125' winchlines and cut them down to 80' and splice the rest into an extension.

I will take it!

I checked out all the suggestions. The best price I have seen so far is:

http://www.amsteelblue.com/item.cfm?itemid=44859

It is owned by masterpull and I confirmed the hook is the HD 3/8th line hook.

You could pick up the AmSteel line on eBay in the link Charles posted and also get one of these hooks for a combined total less than the link you posted. I really like the look but have never owned one of these

On ebay the 125ft of 3/8ths is $300 w/o a hook.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/3-8-A...item3c9a7a030c

Also, the hook has to be installed before the splice or you have to get the stupid connector hook which sucks and is $56.

From amsteelblue.com it is $297 with the 3/8th normal hook ($26 separate).

That's why I liked the Viking hook...unless I am looking at it wrong it appears that this hook can be mounted after the eyelet/splice has been installed

Yes, but the hook is $56 and it is basically putting 26,000lbs on a small shaft.

Someone turned me on to this place. http://www.rwrope.com/ just give them a call to see what they have. (800) 260-8599
I paid about a buck a foot. I just told the guy what I was using the rope for and suggested the best stuff. I forget what I got, but they have lots of different synthetic ropes for your application. You have to do your own splicing

Personally I'm not going to use another uncovered synthetic line. After 2 years it just snaps under load due to UV exposure. The Masterpull (or one UK vendor) lines both have braided covers which should prevent this. Yes more expensive, but if it lasts longer it should be a good trade-off.
