PETZL ZIG ZAG MECHANICAL PRUSIK
The ZIG ZAG Mechanical Prusik allows the user to move around efficiently in a tree using classic Prusik pulley system technique. The linked rings provide precision and fluidity when moving around. The pulley is mounted on sealed ball bearings to allow the slack to be taken up easily. The steel construction offers great durability. Petzl recommends the Petzl OK Carabiner to use with the ZIG ZAG Mechanical Prusik.
