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.
