That looks slick. What's the load rating on the ring pulls?

Hi John,
Thanks for your comment. The load rating of the Ring Pull Prussik is 6kN maximum working load, the prussik knot itself is likely to slip before this force is reached. The prussik cord itself is a polyester kernmantel cord which is flexible & thin enough to wrap & bind onto river lines of diameter 9mm - 11mm.
Cheers
Steve
