Timber Prusiks are a new product in our lineup. The use of Nylon and Technora make this a superior product because of increased thermal and mechanical resistance of the sheath. It is remarkably durable and works well for any friction hitch you like to use.

Honestly I'm not sure I'll climb on another hitch cord the price and quality is unmatched.
I got this prusik for free for ordering a rope, which is awesome by the way. I thought it was cool that they tossed this in the box with the rope. My old lanyard prusik needed to be replaced anyway. This new prusik is smooooth. I didn't ever think much about a prusik being good or bad, guess that's because I never had one this good. Some day when this one wears out I'll buy another one if I don't get more free. I do need one for my climbing line so I think I may buy one of the 10mm prusiks and a hitch climbing pulley. Quality seems to be top notch so far. Eyes are sewn well and the sheath is crazy durable.
