Cord Strength?
Report this Post
Average: avg_1 avg_2 avg_3 avg_4 avg_5 (0 ratings)  

I recently bought a 5m length of pre-cut cord so I can use it specifically for prusiks/autoblocks. I will not be using it for anchors (I prefer slings for that!)

The diameter is 7mm, which I know is suitable for this purpose but the strength rating is 9.8 kN

I've previously used cords for multiple purposes that are stronger than this (10-12 kN range), but since falling with a prusik on the rope wouldn't result in a high-impact force, do you think 9.8 kN should be ok if this is all I'm using it for?
