8mm VT PRUSIK – BLACK
A solid black version of the 8mm VT for tactical and military applications. 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 Technora thread. This thread / stitch combination yields superior strength and overall durability. Made in the U.S.A.
The VT Prusik is a very versatile open-end Prusik. 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.
