Manufacturer Info:

BlueWater Ropes 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 Technora 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 very versatile open-end Prusik. Use it 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. The 8mm VT Prusik is designed for ropes ≥9mm while the 7mm version is designed for personal use on rope diameters of 8mm - 9.5mm
