Opinions on synthetic winch line

Where are you guys getting your Synthetic winch lines? I was going to get a Master pull, but my buddys one year old Master pull line is already fraying a little. Is that normal? What do you guys have that your happy with?

Also, I'm using a Warn XD 9000 winch. I want 3/8 line. Has anybody installed more than 100 feet of 3/8 line? I have been told 100 feet of 3/8 sythetic is all that will fit on that winch. Thanks

Thanks guys. WWW.Winchline.com was a good website. The only thing was that they sell the faileads for $70. I thought I've seen them for around $35. I didn't think there were any differences, are there?

I have 125' of Amsteel blue 3/8" on my 9000, FWIW. Fits fine, works fine, no problem. Yes, mine's frayed, especially in the area that is exposed on the front of the Jeep day to day. I also carry an old piece of fire hose that I use to keep it from fraying on granite. Best thing about synthetic...SAFETY! Even if it snaps at full pull, it just falls to the ground.
