The original Super Yanker is military spec, and has a slightly better fiber. They both have the same stretch and breaking strength characteristics though.
That said, 7/8" in either the original or KOBRA is perfect for a Tacoma.
Hi guys! We just released a lot of new recovery gear here at Master Pull and are having a Black Friday through Cyber Monday sale.
20% off all our products from Friday the 27th through the following Monday the 30th, available at http://www.masterpull.com. Perfect time to get some recovery gear...
I carry one of ours in my recovery bag as well, and really like it. They're made locally, all in the USA, and are a true quality piece. Check them out! http://www.masterpull.com/snatch-block-sbo30000/
If you haven't already, be sure to give our line of gear bags a look. They're all made from water resistant vinyl and come with a sturdy plastic insert that sits in the bottom of the bag to help protect against the problem you've described. I have a small bag that is filled with my shackles...
It really is hard to beat the ease and convenience of a winch. If you're looking into budget winches, make sure you take a look at Warn's VR series. The VR8000 and VR10000 can both be had for less than $600, and I've seen them in the $400s before.
Other than that, bust out the come-along...
This is something to consider. Whether you're running wire or synthetic rope, an 1/8" radius isn't enough and is likely to cause line failure. The cost of an extra fairlead now is better than having to get your line repaired or replaced sometime down the road. As zimm said, ideally the line...
Wow, what an amazing, endless journey! I'm bummed that we weren't able to make it the the Washington Overland Rally this year; I would have loved to hear some of your stories. We're located just across the border from where you are now, in Ferndale, WA, so feel free to stop by if you drop across...
You could also look at the Superline, and Superline XD. Working temp range is -238F to 176F, and melting point begins at 291F. I don't have the working range of the other lines in front of me to compare though.
Yup, that's how we do it up here.
Amsteel flattens out pretty good on the drum under load. It doesn't affect the strength of it at all, but it does look a little odd.
Also, Amsteel and Master Pull ropes purchased through Master Pull have a sleeve that goes on the initial wrap to protect the...
