Feeler: Superwinch Rock98 - Trade

I've had this on the truck for just under a year and have come to the conclusion that short drum winches just don't have enough line for me. I love how lightweight and fast it is, but really want some more line to work with.

I'm amazed how quickly the bolts have corroded in less than a year (and they haven't even seen salt!), but other than that the thing is brand new. I think it only has 3 real pulls on it! Which is slightly embarrassing, honestly.

Has anyone been yearning for a short drum and have something good to trade?

Awe is so cute... how much line has it got on? I've never seen these before. I want it like a middle aged single woman wants another kitty cat.

Per Superwinch specs it says 50' of 3/8" rope.

Yep - that works obviously. It's a great winch, and I'll probably try to find a Talon 9.5 which I believe is essentially the same thing just with a normal size drum - Just figured I'd see if anyone was interested. Believe it or not people do actually want these things

What kind of trade are you looking for?

Really just anything that'll take 100' of synthetic in the 9-10k lb range of comparable value/condition. Otherwise I'll just outright sell if anyone wants it.

Would probably make a great rear winch if someone was doing a build that needed one.
