50' x 3/16" rope is what I use and it has worked very well for me.
Remember to replace the roller fairlead or get a hawse fairlead when switching from wire cable to synthetic rope.
If you don't the rope will get cut by the rough edges the wire cable has left on the old roller fairlead.
Go with the largest that the winch will handle especially if you are in the mud. I don't think if the rope is actually an upgrade, just a preference by some. I have seen both the cable and ropes break. I have had no issues with cable ever.
i would make sure its made by AmSteel -Blue....there are lots of inferior synthetic ropes....lower quality....I did a lot of research before buying mine....it depends on the class of the fiber....different grades....and Amsteel is made in the USA..not China as some others are...
It says its made up of Dyneema fibers and the cable capacity is 7700. Do you think the Dyneema is strong enough? Its from the same company i bought my winch from and the winch seems to be good quality. Thanks
