BlueWater Ropes 8mm VT Prusik. This specialty design features super 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. from Domestic and Globally sourced raw materials.
The VT Prusik is a very versatile open-end prussik.
