Winch Parachutes

I'm searching for a source to purchase a good quality heavy duty winch parachute. Does anyone know of a good chute that will hold up to heavy use on our club winch? It gets dragged through weeds and dirt three days a week!

Thank you.

I use the aerofoam { ] parachutes now. Ive tried lots of others and this one by far has held up. Living in Arizona and flying in the cactus jungle you need something very strong. This has completely filled the bill. One year -no snags or rips. It come with excellent hardware and is double sewed. There are no strings on chute only nylon straps and welded rings. Bought an extra one and very well may never use it unless I convert the highstart to two smaller ones. I think you too will love it.

Thank you for the quick response. I looked at their website and it looks like it will do the job. I'll give it a try.
