The most important attribute of a cord used for prusik hitches is consistency in handling and diameter. Once you have determined the prusik hitch that works best on your host rope, you want the same performance every time you replace it. New England Prusik cord has the right balance of suppleness for reliable activation, and strength for long service life. Made of nylon with a torque-free, kernmantle construction, it comes in different colors to help discriminate between cords designed for prusik hitches and climber’s accessory cords. Two color choices allow you to use a separate color for each length prusik in a tandem prusik belay system. Sold in cut lengths and 300′ spools.
