Polyester accessory cord for Prusik?

  What are thoughts on using New England's Polyester accessory cord for prusiks? Rated at 9.8kn and 7mm, it seems strong enough but I am having a very hard time finding much information on how they compare to nylon cords in regards to friction knots. Anybody else have any experience? The cord also seem a little stiff and not as supple as desired for prusiks, or atleast that is my understanding. Thoughts? Comments?

note: I also did a search on this forum and others for any info on the matter with no avail.
