    • NOT for crevasse rescue!

      25/03/2018
      Jon (United Kingdom)
      Used for 1 week or less
      Tried in a 4 person rescue training scenario alongside various mechanical devices (tiblock, ropeman etc), and also with traditional 5 and 6mm prusik loop cords. All tried on Beal 8mm rando ski touring/glacier travel rope. Temperatures were -12 degrees celcius. Weather was dry. The Simond prusik loop did not work AT ALL with either a prusik or klemheist knot being used. Totally useless - and dangerous.
      Response of the brand
      Hello Jon,

      I am sorry to hear that Prusik Loop 60cm Auto-Block did not perform as well you required it to.

      I have sent you feedback directly to the Brand with the suggestion that the Prusik Loop 60cm Auto-Block be sent to Mountain Rescue teams to test and feedback the product.

      Could you give me more details about your use of the Prusik Loop so that I can give the brand as much information as possible.

      Thank you for your feedback. It is an important part of our product creation process.
