Personal Favorite- Review by DS
Amsteel is a great cordage with many uses. Some say it better be made of gold for the price- it basically is, considering its versatility and spliceability.

I like the 1/4" amsteel for climbing (over 7k tensile) and the 8-10mm for rigging slings. Super strong, super light.

It will pick and fuzz easily, and dynamic loading is a no-no. While it is strong, it is very static and has a low melting point. Shock loading stretches it, which heats it up, and it also creates friction at knots and bends, which also generates heat. Know the gear you're using, and know how to use it. (Posted on 5/27/2016)
