    Still need to see if all of it will fit as it is a bit thicker than the 8.5mm wire rope that came off the drum.
    Thanks, so thats R45/m, a boat shop wants to charge me R92/m
    Can I order 6m and do they fit the hook??

    Caution!!! Dyneema has a very low elongation. This fibre although very strong should not be shock loaded (Used instead of a proper rated bow shackle when snatching) Your snatch strap/rope will still klap the chocolate swirly out of you should something fail on the one end.

    Thanks for all the responces so far.

    I think the rope I have is rated at 8ton...10mm

    I found these online calculators to work out if the full 30m (100ft) will fit ... and as far as I can see I probably have about 10 feet too much.

    Don't really want to cut it... maybe I must use the leftovers to tie some soft shackles...

    OR.

    Would the rope fit as is? Any experience on this? I see the ropes are also sold as 28 and 25 meter lenths by retail .

    All of the 30 meters of rope fit onto the drum - so no worries with space there...

    Thanks I know mine is 26 M, but good to know 30 M goes on.
    Lusted for a Landy but the Pajero was sexier and bigger in the right departments, just like my Missus.
