Product Description

Blue Line thimbles are very popular for use on winch lines, especially for high-performance Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE Spectra) ropes like Ultrex! The thimble has a tubular design that encompasses much of the rope and helps to maintain a proper D/d ratio. This means the rope will bend in the proper radius, even under load. The design of this thimble features a gusset which only further enhances its strength.

We're not sure exactly what your setup is, but for 3/8" we like this hook from Yoke.

I restore, repair and set up winches for off-road 4x4 use and these are the only thimble I will use on 3/8" Dyneema rope. Better than any factory thimble I've seen so far.

Exactly what I needed. The paint on it chips like no tomorrow. You might look into getting them powder coated instead.
Merchant Response:Thanks for the feedback John! We will get with the vendor and discuss a powder coated option.
Pros
  • Very well made, and it is heavy duty.
Cons
  • Cheap paint.
