While many enthusiasts have a personal preference over steel cable or synthetic rope, over the last few years synthetic rope has been adopted as the preferred choice, and is often mandatory in most major sanctioned off-road events.
The decision often comes down to what you’ll be using the particular winch and rope or cable for. Your circumstances will very much determine your final decision.
Most winches today come pre-packaged with either synthetic rope or steel cable. Depending on which will often determine the price difference as synthetic is usually more expensive than steel.
Below is a general list of synthetic vs steel pros and cons. It’s important to note that not all synthetic and steel cables are the same, and some will have different features and capabilities.
Regardless of which option you choose, always make sure you use a winch cable dampener when winching. If a winch cable snaps (synthetic or steel) it can become a dangerous projectile and cause significant harm to those nearby and other vehicles.
