This rope is extremely supple and easy to work with, and with the amazing strength, it is a purchase well worth the money.

The product was shipped fast & protected well inside shipping package. Amsteel was in perfect condition and tests & splices great. Awesome product, thanks!

We reviewed a lot of Cable/Rope options for our new prototype device. The break strength we needed was only 200 lbs. the 1/4 inch Amsteel was more than 7000 lbs. Price for nylon and polyethylene was about .50/foot but we gained 35 % more strength. I could even drop to 1/8 inch size and if my calculations are correct I would still have ten times the strength I need at nearly the same price as nylon or polyethylene. Why would I ever use anything else? The line is also more flexible and seems to coil much better than nylon or polyethylene without getting into knots and tangles. And compared to wire cable that can rust, kink cut your hands, etc... Well lets just say, "I will never use wire cable for anything ever again. AmSteel is the only Cable / Rope / Wire / Line that I will ever use for any application requiring a line of any kind. Ultraviolet resistant, Water resistant, Rot and Mildew resistant, will not Rust, Does not knot or kink easily, superior flexibility, Coils easily, and on and on... can outperform the headline is all you will ever need to remember. Amazing!!!

I have been using Amsteel blue for a three years on a workboat equipped with a crane. It works great for us, I can't imagine going back to wire rope.

Headline says it all, Superior to steel winch line, even if you break or wear out splice in a new eye and back to work.

this line was recco to me at the Ft Lauderdale boat show buy the dinghy sales company I visited in search of a high strength and less bulky tow line option.
I just towed my 750# AB dink from Charlotte Harbor Fl to the Keys and it was perfect!!! we ran about 12 kts in calm to pretty rough seas and no issues. love it love it
