Do You Want to Get The Best Petzl Grigri?
Synthetic winch ropes have gone a long way in the last decade. They're light, store very little kinetic energy when stressed, and last a long time. Many sanctioned off-road sports have begun to demand them due to the enhanced level of safety they give. While it isn't true that they 'just drop' when they break, they do have a lot less weight snapping back towards your vehicle when they fail. However, correct use of a winch line damper is still recommended, as is maintaining a "safety zone" for all parties involved in the rescue endeavour.
