From AZ Rock:
Outstanding prusik that can be rigged a variety of ways to suit the exact need of the issue at hand. The technora withstands heat that would melt a traditional prusik allowing you to use and abuse the gear in ways that would surely cause destruction of others.
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:
Asymmetric Prusik (Schwabisch/Distal)
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.
