Coming to the meeting? I was looking at that winchline.com stuff (or x-line but it's only available in 3/8") but it would be ~$240 shipped. MUCH cheaper than Warn's $700-$800 cost but I'm thinking I should go the free route for the time being

125' does not fit easily on the XD9000. You are better off with 5/16" x 100'. We sell the Masterpull range and have them in stock.

Yep...For anyone wondering Warn cust svc replied back to my inquiry and they say:
"The maximum length of synthetic rope that can be used on your XD9000, is 100ft.
As for using 3/8 size wire rope in place of 5/16 wire rope, this can not be recommend as it was never designed into the XD9000."
Christo, how does the Masterpull stuff compare to the other synthetic lines on the market? I never knew there were so many choices and they all seem to very similar...I still may just go with the free wire cable Waggoner offered for the time being and use the savings for other mods

Synthetic is not just bling, it's safer. I run rockstomper line. You can, of course, easily cut to fit.

Thanks Bill...Rockstomper seems to have INCREDIBLY reasonable prices compared to others. Can get 100' of rope + 50' extension for about the same price or less than just 100' of rope at other places. I like the winchline.com "thimble" deal but more from a bling perspective than need

Someone throw a rock at me and knock me off the fence please

I got my synth line from them...good prices, nice folks. I also got other goodies like a snatch block and maybe a tree saver or something. Great quality stuff.

The best pricing on synthetic I've found. 5/16" x 100' = $138
