Best *mid priced* Kinetic Recovery Rope?

Hi all

We like to go camping 4 seasons, and off the beaten path. Want to carry a 30 foot *mid priced* Kinetic Recovery Rope, just in case we get stuck, or come across someone who needs help.

7,000 lb 4x4 truck and about 3,000 lb (wet/loaded) truck camper, so about 10,000 lb total.

My instinct is to go for a mid priced Kinetic Recovery Rope - so nothing crappy that will let me down, but not super high end.

A number of people have suggested Yankum Ropes as a good choice.

Looking around the internets I don’t see any unbiased reviews. Any thoughts on what I should buy?

This is the specific 1” ($214) Yankum they recommended, based on my rig.

thanks

My suggestion would be two 30' x 3" standard recovery straps and a couple of D-rings.

Look up Freedom ropes, they are based out of Pismo beach, and their ropes are used to pull some big stuff out and about down there. The Raptor crowd I ran with all used them.

Recovery ropes are priced according to the diameter and length of the rope. This is a very highly rated rope on Amazon that may meet your requirements.

Matt’s offroad recovery towing on youtube uses Yankem. They seem to work fine. It’s a business for him.

I’d also consider a 5000 hitch mounted winch with a pulley to double the pull but still be light as well as recovery straps and tree savers, and an anchor.

ps. this is a good, related article, and it explains why I do not want to buy a tow strap, even if it is called something else on the package.

My research indicates that kinetic Recovery Ropes are a LOT safer for everyone involved, and is also safer for both vehicles, (far less jerk on the rigs)

You get what you pay for. If you don't know how to pull out a stuck vehicle these "Kinetic Recovery Ropes" are a way to cover up any number of stupid mistakes...Maybe. Take a look at "Highway to Hell" on the Weather Channel and tell us how many kinetic rope recoveries you see. ZERO!! These guys are the professionals and know what they're doing.
