Do you guys use different pull cords for your Ultrex or just the standard cord. Got a broken one and wondering what to replace it with. Looking for the strongest cord that fits the Ultrex whether it's stock or something else. TIA.

Ultrex cable on mine broke, too. I have the TH Marine on my Fortrex, luckily the break on the cable was only 1" from the mounting ring, so I just shortened the cable by am inch and put it back into place.

G Force is the only way to go. Academy has them in stock and has the best price I found.

Rule of thumb is they all break at one point so keep a spare ๐Ÿ˜‚

I use the G-Force. Had to replace it last year because the handle broke.

My cable has broken twice. Both times I cut off the frayed end and reinserted it into the barrel and tightened the two Allen set screws. No need to waste money.

Same here. It was getting pretty short.

Ah. Yeh. Once itโ€™s repaired a few times, it does get short. roflmao
Depending on where mine breaks the next time, I might need to go to Ace Hardware and buy another 3 ft of coated cable. Itโ€™s cheap. I did this to every troller Iโ€™ve had. I was actually impressed with the Ultrex hardware my old Fortrex, Maxxums, and Edge were rope.
