U.S. Made Amsteel Blue synthetic fiber ATV Winch rope has a higher breaking strength than that of steel cable of the same diameter, but weighs less than one-sixth. It will not get all wound-up like cable, and can not develop sharp frays. It does not conduct electricity or heat, so it will not freeze your hands in winter. It will not rust, does not kink, does not recoil, does not stretch, or does not store energy. Need we say more!
