wire or synthetic you want to use a tree saver either way. If you go synthetic don't be like me and just let it sit dirty....get a quality winch cover and get it clean when you're done with a muddy run.

Remember, if you get Synthetic, and you are stuck all by yourself and you have no trees nearby just a hundred saplings, the synthetic wont last long. Wire is better in the long haul.

Yup, it works quite well. I used it once on an AO run and even in wet land, it'll dig in enough to give you a good solid winch point.

You shouldn't be winching off of a hundred saplings anyway...take a pull pal if you are out wheeling alone...which you shouldn't do in Alaska anyway. If you wheel alone, at least know the trail, and if you know the trail, you know if you have something to winch off of, right?
