Amsteel is like $300 for 125ft of 3/8ths.
Their website (Amsteel or MasterPull) just rolls right to an eBay store, and no 3/8 x 125 (or sliver color, which is what I wanted too). But I'm probably going 80-100 anyhow, and have been talking to Custom Splice that has the same line from Samson (who makes Amsteel).

They also have it without the hook for $365.

They have amsteel for $300 at 3/8th by 125ft with a hook.

sort by "highest price first" and they are easy to find.

Personally I like having the extra length.

Sorry I should have clarified...I'm looking for the safety thimble, which they do have in blue but not silver. Custom Splice can do this for 100' shipped @ $290.

IMO, you should be using a factor of safety of 2:1 on the rope as a minimum. The rated strength is in perfect conditions in a lab with no previous use. With field use and allowing for a reasonable lo cycle fatigue life, 2:1 gives a reasonable expectation of not braking the rope in use as long as you watch for damage.

Rigging and attachment points should be rated at 4:1 for similar reasons putting the rope as the weak point, which is important for safety.

I've got 125 of the 3/8 and its too long. I have to either power out if I have it all wrapped on the drum or leave about 10-15 feet wrapped around the front lights if I won't to free spool. If I can find a couple of eyelets and such I'm going to cut and splice it in half.

Yeah, I'm almost thinking 80' is the magic number with an extension and/or strap option in the recovery bag.
