Each RimSling winch line is made from 12 strands of high-strength HDPE fibers in a single braid with an oriented white stripe for twist identification. The synthetic winch line offers virtually zero cord memory, resulting in fewer tangles and less birdnesting on the spool. The rope is also lightweight and won’t fray like steel lines, reducing strain on the body and the chance for cuts to the operator. The line also won’t stretch over time.
Just as strong as its steel counterpart, RimSling’s winch line weighs one-seventh of traditional steel lines. It won’t scratch vehicle surfaces and offers excellent abrasion resistance. Even if the strands are severed, the torque-free line will fall limp to the ground because it doesn’t store energy under tension, unlike steel cable. The rope will also float in water, increasing its usefulness in water recoveries and other wet environments.
This winch line is available only in black but comes in three diameters—3/8”, 7/16” and 1/2". The Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) varies by size. The rust-free line can be washed with soap water. A clean line is important to the longevity of the line and keeps it functioning as it should under daily use. Each line also includes a self-locking hook to ensure the winch line is properly secured to the casualty.
RimSling’s winch fibers are also coated for durability. Its low stretch properties won’t cause a loss in towing power or threaten the integrity of the line. The flexibility of the line also makes rigging easier, allowing the line to reach areas on the vehicle which may not be accessible to rigid steel line. The line won’t kink, either, and will not need to replaced as often as steel winch line.
Make the switch today and choose lightweight synthetic winch line from the brand you know and trust. RimSling’s synthetic lines will last longer than the competition, and operators will be converted quickly with each repeated use. Order by diameter and lengths. Custom lengths are available upon request.
