Construction. One of the number one benefits to synthetic winch rope is that it is much safer than steel cables. When winching with a steel cable, it is imperative to use a winch line dampener to prevent injury should the cable snap. What makes steel cables dangerous in the event of a snap is that they store energy when pulled that is released when it fails, however synthetic rope does not, this prevents severe injuries caused by a cable snap which is the main reason. This winch rope comes with a protective sleeve to prevent overheating on the winch brake drum.
