The Winch Rope
The winch rope used is 12 strand 5mm Dynice 75 with a breaking strain of 3200kg (7054 lbs lbs). It is specifically coloured red for better visibility. This rope combines strength, light weight and ease of use. It is relatively inelastic and therefore poses minimal recoil risk in the event of a break. It is easily repaired if broken and long lengths can be carried and spooled to winch over long distances.
