Amsteel Deal!
« on: March 03, 2018, 05:11:07 PM »
Not sure how many people use amsteel 7/64 rope, this is one heck of a deal for a product with one strand being a tracer color.

This is a real bogo deal!

If you click on the link you will see the silver has a green color going through it. I have seen pics of the yellow spool with a blue tracer.

I use Amsteel 3/16" rope on my ATV winch.  It has held up pretty well for about three years or so.  It came with a cover that helps keep the first three or four feet from getting abraded.  The 3/16" doesn't have a tracer in it but I have never seen an advantage of having it.

I also carry two 3/16" lengths of Amsteel in my hunting pack.  One end has a carabiner tied on it and it is used to pull my bow and quiver up to the top of my tree stand.  The other is handy for dragging deer home on the ATV or using it in a pulley to hoist up deer for skinning and cutting up. 

The lengths I have are 20' long and probably are not necessary in the things I use it for but I got them at a yard sale for next to nothing.  Good stuff in my book.

That is a good price.  I still have quite a bit left over on the last spool I bought, but it is tempting.

If I am reading the price right you have to buy 1200' of it.  If enough of you, especially those who live close, went in you could get a heck of a buy and split it up.

Most people I don't expect to buy the larger spool of 1200 feet to get the bogo but 1 600 foot spool for have price is a great deal. I have broken up spools and sold 100 foot hanks to the kracs for $20, the deal now would be a little over $11.

It appears to me they are out of 600' spools as there is no price listed for them.

I'd like to try some, but 100 feet of it would be plenty for me. :-\

I read it wrong, if you select 600' it goes to the cart at $67.95.  Great buy.

Well my 600 foot spool was winding down so I splurged and purchased the 1200 foot spool.
