Highly recommended for all lifting operations as a splice maintains close to 100% of the rope capacity, unlike a knot, which reduces its capacity by at least 30%.
They also provide protection against wear caused by carabiners, shackles and hooks attached at the end of the rope. Splices at both ends of the rope also allow it to be flipped over from time to time so it wears out evenly on its entire length.
For a better performance, always use Portable Winch Co. ropes with your winch. Its double-braided construction makes it durable and features low stretch for increased safety. Its low cost and resistance to abrasion make it a good choice for using with our capstan winches, where it is subject to friction and intense heat.
