Any thoughts on the type of synthetic line I should go with? I like the 3/8" Viking combo line with safety thimble.

See you at CM06
You should always stick to the design limits of the winch. On the other hand the 12k winch is more than enough winch for any situation so I really doubt you would have any problems going to 150'. Check out for syth cable and supplies.
