I had mentioned a little while ago that I was looking at a volume purchase of synthetic lines from one of the Chinese commerce websites. Well, after getting a few quotes back, I got an updated price from aliexpress.com for a single item. Here's the page for the particular one I bought: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Grey-Bla ... 91655.html They have a 15% off deal for the next 9 days.

It came out to $142.80USD, all in (the best volume deal I had so far was $150 for minimum 10 items). That's for a 30 meter long 10mm rope (10mm holds a 7.5 ton load or roughly 15,000lbs). I'm getting a red one to go with my new fangs. :)

Buying individually is going to be better for the folks with lower rated winches, rather than be part of a buy for 10mm lines, you can order the right line for your winch and the price will be lower. Here's the vendor's store on Aliexpress: http://www.aliexpress.com/store/511648
Scroll down the page and you'll see a bunch of winch ropes for sale.

I've dealt with Alibaba.com and Aliexpress.com for a few years. They are good online vendors and they have a great buyer protection setup. If your item is not delivered on time or it is defective/wrong product, you get your money back. I've triggered it twice, once the product was late so I got my money back (and got to keep the item when it arrived), and once the product was missing a piece (they sent me the piece fedex 2 day delivery from China so I didn't enact the escrow).

So if you're interested in a synthetic line, this is probably the best deal you'll find.

I took possession of my winch line Friday. A bit of a surprise with the duty, but the total still came in under $200. They weren't producing red so I went with grey colour or I would have been waiting an undetermined amount of time - i.e. way too long. Now I need to get a hawse fairlead.
