    Does anyone have an opinion regarding “8mm Blue Water VT Prusik (31”/33”) ~$25/$30” vs. “8mm Bulldog Technora® Prusik Lanyard from Pelican Rope (32”) ~$23”?

    Also - any pref. between the 7mm vs. the 8mm Lanyard (specifically for the Blue Water lanyard)? My ropes run between 8.3 and 9.2 mm

    Hard to get the 8mm VT to grab on an 8mm rope- even when both are nice and fuzzy-
    hence the 7mm BW VT which works pretty well on the skinny cords.
    Would also like to know how well the Pelican clamps on smaller diameters.....

    Thanks! Have you tried the 7mm on 9.2mm rope?
