just as it states...and where ya get it...i need 125` of 3/8
We sell Winchline products. Browse around and see something you like, throw me a PM and I'll see what I kind of price I can get you
I've found Winchline on ebay cheap a lot. Winchline.com by the way. I'm in the market too. Post up what you find.
Scott at Rockstomper
x2...Scott had the best price too.
is rockstomper his user name? if not is there a link?
alright i found rockstomper....but it looks as if BlackMesa is cheaper....i need 3/8 125`....am i wrong or are they cheaper...i`m looking for red
I can't attest to Scott's business (although I've heard he's a good guy) but BlackMesa has some of the best prices around and their service is second to none. I've ordered rather small items from them a couple of times and always been treated extremely well. Besides, they support CK5.
how much does rockstomper want for 125` of 3/8ths preferably red??
BlackMesa wants 360
Yep. You really might want to reconsider the need for synthetic. I'm in the market too, but really I'm only doing so for the added safety since I'll have my young nephews with me a lot this summer and I'll be the adult with the most experience (and that is scary! ) I figure it will add a little safety to the mix.
i think i really need the added safety too, because this is my first time, and i have a feeling i`m getting stuck alot...so it would be good, but i just wanted to know who has the best prices...better than 360 for 125` of 3/8 color red or gray....
do i need 125` or would 100` be ok?is there a big diff in $$ between them?
is scott a member here?how do i buy his stuff?
Did you check out that link I posted for you a while back from Pirate? It's good stuff.
I got mine from Tony at rock equip- its lasted 2 years so far- I carry the steel as spare in the back though- Jess
I personally wouldnt get 125', thats alot of line! I helped prestrech a 100ft line and damn its long. Unless you find yourself or others in possitions that are far from anything solid or something, 100ft is the max i would get.
If safety is the only factor, invest in a couple line flags. They're a LOT cheaper than the synthetic rope.
fireplug i dont think i saw the link?.....i think i might get just 100`...can someone give me a link for the best price of 100` 3/8ths preferably red or gray in color?TIA
I want to get it for weight savings. My Warn HS9500i is mounted on the multi mount platform and I have to lift that thing in and out all the time. It's a pig with the stock line on there.
I've yet to see a line or anchor break or give, but I always wonder if weights on the line really would make much of a difference. Anyone every see them do their job?
Weight on the multimount is a good point, moving that thing to the back of the rig in soupy mud is always the highlight of the day!
1. They have to be maintained, not spooled and forgotten.
2. Yup, they will break.
3. The cable stores energy and the cable fails while under tension, it's going somewhere and it's going to get there fast. Hence the reasoning why you want a pretty damn solid hookup point and not like a ball hitch, cause those things might just come back with the cable towards your head. What the cable weights will do is under a failure like has been talked about, it will hold down the broken cable. Think a Navy fighter landing on an aircraft carrier.
