To make a sling we recommend the double fisherman’s knot, except for Dyneema cord, which requires a triple fisherman’s knot. For prusik loops we recommend the use of our 7 mm accessory cord, or our 5.5 mm Dyneema. Because Dyneema is very slippy, cords made from it present sheath slippage. For this reason they must not be used as the second line during abseil descents.
Pure Dyneema 5 mm accessory cord
100 % dyneema accessory cord particularly suited to making foot loops and secondary anchors for caving. Never use to make self-locking knots (Melting point: 145° C).
