Default Synthetic winch line

Finally got the truck back together and was using the winch yesterday when i noticed a badly boogered up section. I guess its time for some synthetic. Any one have recommendations for type or vendor.

I know Danny just bought some, but can't remember where from.
Last time I bought it, I used Amsteel Blue.
You'll want at least 3/8 with the size of your truck.

The winch has 90' of 7/16" on it now. I was between keeping that size or dropping down to 3/8" and putting a little more on.

I decided to go with the Diamond Line from customsplice.com. It was only $20 more than steel cable for the same size. I'll see how it holds up. My winch is mostly covered so hopefully that keeps the UV degradation down.

Anyone want my old steel cable?
