    I'm thinking of getting 100' of synth line to go with my winch. One thing I haven't been able to find anywhere is a good estimate of how much weight difference there is between both types of rope. Can anyone tell me about how heavy 100' of equally rated (say, for an 8000lb winch) wire vs. synthetic rope really is?

    just from googling and whatnot it looks about 30 lb's less.

    look up the weight of the rope you have, its online somewhere guaranteed. look up the weight of the new line your looking into and subtract the two.
