Designed by Rich Carlson, manufactured by BlueWater Ropes. This specialty design features a 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 BlueWater’s custom Technora thread. This thread / stitch combination yields superior strength and overall durability.
The VT Prusik is a very versatile open-end Prusik that can be useed to tie:
- Symmetric Prusik
- Asymmetric Prusik (Schwabisch/Distal)
- Valdotain Tresse
- French Prusik
- and more
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.
