    Ridgeline question

    If I use 1.75mm zing it for my ridgeline,
    what can I use for any prussiks that I fit to it?
    Can I still use the 1.75 zing it, or do I need a smaller dia cord for the Prussiks?

    You can use the same 1.75mm line. If you are talking prussicks for your CRL on your tarp, and extra wrap or two may help or you can tie a kleinheist knot, which is what I use. There are many other knots that will work fine as well.

    +1 on what raiffnuke has said. I use the same line with an added wrap or two or mason's line which I find has great grab.

    I am using braided mason line for all of my prusiks. I think I have 4 wraps on mine and they hold great. Haven't had them out in really high winds yet but they hold up to a substantial tug by yours truely
