We get a lot of phone calls from customers asking, "how do I know what size tow rope I need?" Oddly enough, it is a somewhat complex question with a fairly straight forward answer.
Choosing the correct tow rope size isn't an exact science since not every piece of equipment will be stuck the same way twice. There are several factors, such as pulling angle (incline or decline), suction, depth, rolling weight vs. stuck weight, etc. Taking all of this in to consideration it is always a good idea to have a bit of a safety factor when choosing the correct tow rope.
