i made my synthetic rope for about $50-70 less than a premade. i bought amsteel in bulk from a marine shop, from there, it's a piece of cake. btw, don't bother purchasing the fids..you don't need them. i went to synthetic right away since it was a present from my bro and sis in law. i sold my old cable for $70, so that almost paid for half of the synthetic. weight is a huge difference!! the cable is flat out heavy (i'd guess around 40lbs) and my sythetic is about five pounds. safety factor is also nice.
