Besides weight and safety, the main thing I love about my synth is how much easier it is to handle. I had 3/8" GAC on my 8274, so it was even stiffer than some of the thinner ropes. Between kinks, frayed strands waiting to puncture my gloves and simply manhandling it when using or spooling back in it was a PITA. Going to 3/8" syth was just frigging awesome in terms of handing it. OTOH, I got my use out of the GAC first and didn't make the switch until the GAC was worn and in need of replacement anyway.
