I am sure someone will come in and try to throw down some math and give you an answer, but the reality is there are too many variables in the real world to be able to accurately calculate it. The best option would be to test directly the question in the field with a load cell and find out.

I was hoping there was a way to get a rough estimate. By using the kinetic energy, the angle when the line gets under tension, and energy absortion from the rope. Tried looking into viscoelastic theory for ropes, but I might aswell have tried speaking penguin.

Thanks for your input.

Already done, calculated for the worst case scenario, but it's more fun to know things I guess:)
