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?

All the new ATV winches are coming standard with synthetic cable now. It is much stronger than steel at the same diameter and it has no "spring" in it so Its much safer to winch with than steel.

I have had no issues with my synthetic cable since getting a new Warn 3500 pound winch with it already on there. You just have to keep it clean. I just unreal it and rinse it off after each ride where I needed to use it to recover my buddies in the mud.
