I think the bugger that most run into with prusiks is that you need to prusik a smaller line to a larger (main support) line. It'll work, but then you're carrying heavier main suspension line, offsetting the benefit....cruel, cruel world...
Or just wrap the prusik an extra turn or two to increase the surface for "bite". The problem arises when the prusik material can't turn tight enough for the smaller diameter line. An extra turn will help with that.
