Winch Cable???

I am getting ready to purchase a new winch. I am not reall sure I want to pay the extra $$$ for the synthetic cable. What it everyones take on synthetic winch cable vs. the steel cable seems like it would be the strongest. But how strong do you really need it to be?

The few times I've used my winch I found myself secretly worring about the darn thing snapping and coming back to rip my head off. Eliminating this threat is worth it IMHO. I also don't think the synthetics are weaker than the steel. I used to think that until I watched video of one with a jeep hanging off it, literally.
