Samson Amsteel Blue 3/8 x 150ft Steel Thimble
- Product Review (submitted on October 10, 2018):
I have been using this on the chipper winch for almost five years and would never go back to steel.
It is so nice, the price doesn't really matter. You don't need gloves to use it, and it doesn't coil up when slack, like steel does. You can lay it on the ground and it stays there like a string.
And it is not as important to wind it smoothly on the drum, because, unlike steel, it doesn't matter if it gets squished from crossing over itself.
And, when the end wears out, you can easily make a new eye yourself, because it's hollow.
The only thing you need to watch is that you don't run it over a sharp edge.
