The 7mm VT Prusik was designed for use on smaller diameter ropes. This specialty design features a tough, heat resistant Technora aramid sheath over durable nylon core strands. The core in this kernmantle design keeps the VT from flattening and binding up. A computerized large gauge sewing machine is used to bar tack a devilishly strong stitch with our custom thread. This thread/stitch combination yields superior strength and overall durability. Manufactured in the U.S.A. from Domestic and Globally sourced raw materials.
The VT Prusik is a versatile open-end Pruisk. Use to tie: Symmetric Prusik, Asymmetric Prusik (Schwabisch/Distal), Valdotain Tresse, French Prusik
The VT performs well when used for ascending, self-belay while rappelling, as a traveling rope grab, or in conjunction with a prusik minding pulley in haul systems.
