snatch ropes/snatch straps

aight fellas..... I'm wanting to spend some money soon. I'm tired of pulling people out of holes or vice versa with regular recovery straps and getting my head pulverized throughout the cab of the truck. I'm looking at a $229 mega snatch rope. Does anyone have one??? It is a 1 and one half inch wide x 30 foot long. those recovery straps or very hard on a truck when you're yanking the hell out of it. Just wanted some input fellas. Thanks.

ive got one that i think i paid $30 for...ive used it on a number of vehicles and havent found any ripping or tearing or seams busting yet

the important thing is buy one with 2 loops...NO HOOKS!

also inspect it after EVERY use

chains can break and are heavy and a PITA to deal with

again with the flying hunks of metal...

id rather spend some extra money on a strap than have metal flying around

yes.... this rope has loops on the end of it. it is a 52300 lb rating. the other one is a 74000 lb rating. Yes, I will be hooking to 4x4 yotas as well as 3/4 ton trucks. Our hunting land is a bit messy towards the end of the season. the hell with chains.... if you have your head thrown around the cab enough and have broken mounts on your truck from them snatching.... you will change your mind. Chains are only good for one thing.... pulling very very very slow... not yanking.
