I saw AngrySparrow's report that it didn't hold on Lash It. That stuff is really thin.
The GH has been holding very nicely on single braid Vectran 12 I'm using on my DIY bridge. It is a little thinner than 3mm Amsteel Blue. Gets pinched quite flat in the rings---but holds!
I also think it is critical to have the back side of the rings pinched tightly. The cord I'm using to prusik the rings is 3.8mm Spyderline, thicker than I normally use but here I don't need much of it. Multiple wraps, fat line--->well pinched back side.
